The grape harvest is nearing an end, but it's still worth repeating: Be careful when driving on local roads this time of year, especially at night.
The danger of motorists colliding with large and slow-moving grape harvesters and other ag-related vehicles is quite real. A Galt woman was injured Tuesday night after hitting a tractor pulling a havester on Peltier Road, east of Davis Road. An official said the woman may not have seen lights on the harvester, part of which extended over the center line.
So drivers, slow down and beware. And growers, make sure your equipment is up-to-date with all lighting and safety equipment.
Tuesday's night accident, fortunately, resulted in only minor injuries.
