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.
It is not simply a reflector- it is a warning to SLOW DOWN!
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.
