Farmers were raising awareness about safety on country roads during a public safety event in North East Thursday.

This is the time of year farmers will be on rural roads working all hours of the day.

Their goal is to remind everyone to be cautious around farm vehicles and equipment and promote safety on more rural roads.

Drivers are also advised to keep their distance when coming up on one of these machines.

Keep in mind, if you can't see their mirrors, the driver can't see you.
