Sacramento, CA — New methods to improve tractor safety could result from work being undertaken at the University of California.
Researchers have earned a half million dollar grant to explore new methods to promote safe tractor use.
Earlier research shows fewer than half of tractors have rollover bars or seat belts.
In February, two people were killed in Calaveras County after their tractors rolled over them.
The research will study potential changes in safety devices and possible incentives to retrofit existing tractors.
