SMV stands for slow-moving-vehicle. This sign must be displayed on all farm equipment designed to operate at speeds 25 mph or less when traveling on the road.
If you are driving 55 mph and come up on a tractor moving 15 mph, it only takes 5 seconds to close a gap the length of a football field between you and a tractor.
It is not simply a reflector- it is a warning to SLOW DOWN!
