Tractor Drivers

Alert message sent 10/07/2019 15:48:00

Information sent on behalf of Dorset Alert

Sherborne Rural Neighbourhood Policing Team has received reports of speeding tractors passing through Longburton, Sherborne, and also tractors causing damage to roadside signs and bollards near Bishops Caundle and Alweston.

Officers with the No Excuse team and roads policing target agricultural vehicles in response to complaints received regarding speeding, distracted driving, careless and inconsiderate driving and drivers using mobile phones.

Mobile patrols target farm vehicles being driven dangerously and inconsiderately alongside Community Speed Watch volunteers and schemes.

If you are a tractor driver or have drivers working for you to please drive considerately. We understand that this is a busy time for farmers and that there is obviously going to be an increase of activity on the roads however; there is never an excuse for endangering yourselves or others.
