Accidents can happen anytime, anywhere, anyhow.
I have ridden on a drawbar on the back of my tractor many times while others drove. My grandfather rode on the drawbar while I drove. I know it may not be safe, but it's not safe to drive a car these days. :-)
Lets have a show of hands who have stood on a drawbar while someone else drove.
The commercial may not be suited for teaching what is right while operating a tractor, but there's common sense and some safety involved when standing on a drawbar. I also don't stand on a drawbar when an implement/wagon is attached.
I have to point out that the drawbars on my 9N and Jubilee are stationary, and not connected to the 3pt hitch. There's a larger platform for standing so it's a bit different than the drawbar attached to the 3pt.
Ready to be cut down by the safety police. LOL!
