    1. Customers and bystanders coming closer and closer to mowers and dangerous equipment when they should wait 2 seconds for me to shut it off and approach them instead.
    2.Cars, cars, & and drivers texting in their cars on the road when loading and unloading mowing equipment from the trailer. Thats why everything we wear is hi-Viz, use safety cones and everything has strobe warning lights on it.

    All of the above though I don't work in many high traffic areas but we do wear hi vis. Throwing a rock thru car glass. Done it.

    One danger I think of is heat related injury and over heating in our HOT humid south. Be careful out there.
