It's the time of year where corn is starting to grow and driving out on rural roads may impact your vision when coming up to intersections. When approaching an intersection, double check both ways before entering the intersection.

Drivers may have the right of way at a controlled intersection, it's best to slow down or come to a complete stop to double check both ways before continuing through. The Nebraska Department of Transportation states the maximum speed limit on a gravel road is 50 mph.
