Find Me Driving

I’m SAM and safety is my game.

Look for my bright orange triangle on slow moving vehicles (SMVs) like tractors & combines, maintenance vehicles, horse & buggies, street cleaners, and more, then approach with caution.

When we share the road, we all win!

Driving Tips

Safety First

Find the Sign

Vehicles with a maximum speed of 25 mph are required to post a SMV sign on the back of the vehicle. At night, the reflective red border of the SMV sign is visible.

Slow Down

Rear-end collisions are the number one cause of SMV accidents. If you are driving 55 mph and come upon a SMV moving at 25 mph, it only takes 8 seconds to close a gap the length of a football field.

Pass with Care

SMVs are typically large and hard to see around. Wait for a safe passing zone, watch for oncoming traffic, signal and return to the lane once the SMV is in your rear view mirror.
