Collisions with Horse-Drawn Buggies in Amish Country

According to national figures, it would appear that the number of collisions between motorized vehicles and horse-drawn buggies is not changing significantly, but straighter, faster rural roads combined with a growth in Amish populations is causing concern amongst highway safety professionals.

 Rural website “The Daily Yonder” has created a very informative page on this subject, under the heading: “Fast Cars, Slow Buggies Create Road Dangers for Amish.”

For drivers, as always, “The Golden Rule of Safe Driving” must be applied!
