It's the same old request. But you know better.
Extra riders on a tractor just can't be protected, especially if you get in an accident and the tractor overturns. Your extra rider is the first to get tossed off, crushed or run over. Even if you have a cab.
No matter how they plead, how innocently they ask, or how much you want to give in to their requests, you've got to say no to extra riders on your tractor.
