Slow down warning to Keith farmers

accident keith tractor parked carsRECENT collisions have led police in Keith to urge drivers of agricultural vehicles to be more careful.

Concerns have been raised by the local community council to the police about the speed some farmers are reaching.

PC Tomas Spracklen from the Keith Community Policing Team said: "We are encouraging people who drive large agricultural vehicles to be aware of the dangers of high loads and speeding in built-up areas.

"On Saturday morning we attended a collision on Regent Street after a tractor lost control and tipped over onto three cars, causing considerable damage.

"We attended a similar incident on Friday, May 25, after a trailer tipped over in Church Road and caused damage to a wall and parked vehicles.

"Keith is a built-up area and we are encouraging all road users to be considerate to each other.

"Luckily nobody was injured following these collisions."
