Does farm equipment need a pilot car?

Farm equipment may be driven or towed to the left of the center of a roadway only if it is escorted by a vehicle displaying hazard warning lights that are visible in normal sunlight. The escort vehicle must be located in front of the farm equipment and the equipment must not extend into the left half of the roadway more than is necessary.
