Question: When I come across a cattle crossing sign in the road, does that mean I yield to the farmer crossing his cattle similar to a pedestrian crossing sign?

Answer: If you come across anyone crossing the road you would need to yield. It’s always important to scan the road ahead for pedestrians and hazards. Drive attentively and at safe speeds. Remember, people and other objects can be difficult to see, especially in bad weather or at night.

By paying attention and traveling at safe speeds you can help prevent a crash and save lives.
