Scott Westaby had some strong words for holiday weekend drivers putting other families at risk. While driving his farming tractor down the highway at 24 miles per hour (38/kph) he noticed that agressive holiday drivers had no patience. They were passing him on double solid lines and blind corners which could cause a head on collision killing innocent families.
In his viral post he stated instead of driving so recklessly “relax and use that extra 10 minutes to think about someone else.”
The viral post has collected more than 47,000 likes and 43,000 shares since it was posted. Frustrated with reckless drivers, Westaby went on to remind people that every tractor on the road is helping to feed your family, rather than thinking of it as a delay to your precious vacation time. With mother nature providing farmers with a less than ideal Spring, Westaby has been forced to work around the clock rather than spending time with his family.
In the viral post, Westaby shared a photo of the cars lined up behind his tractor heading to their holiday destinations. He reminded drivers that at most, it may be a 10 minute delay for vacationers to have their “first cold one.”
As summer vacation season has officially started, slow down and be patient on the highway this summer. Arriving safe at your destination should always be your number one priority. Your family and other drivers will thank you for it.
