SPRINGFIELD  – Illinois State Police are reminding farmers this week not to drive heavy equipment on the Interstate after an officer pulled over a rather large piece of farm equipment for doing just that.

State Police reported Thursday a farmer driving a tractor southbound on Interstate 55 near Williamsville.  According to reports, the driver apparently took a wrong turn and wound up on the heavily trafficked interstate.

“This could have been a very bad situation, as it was nearly 1.5 lanes wide, along with the slow speed, but we got lucky.” State police said in a statement.

The farmer was issued a citation for Operating a farm tractor on highway under 625 ILCS 5/11-1418.
