Beginning Sept. 1, new slow
moving vehicle emblem standards will be enforced. The new law
requires that the emblems certify compliance with ASAE S276.5. These
new emblems are twice as durable, 10 times brighter and provide
visibility for 1,000 feet. The certification may be checked by
looking in the bottom of the familiar orange triangle and finding
New SMV emblems may be purchased at most
farm equipment dealers, farm supply stores, or county Farm Bureau
offices. Make sure the new emblem you purchase is compliant with the
new regulation, as many stores will still offer the old emblems.
(The new emblems aren't required in every state). Violations of the
law may result in fines of up to $75 per incident.
