    Where’s PETA? Enough of this horsie abuse. Get buggies & bicycles OFF OUR ROADS. Layoff state patrol persons. They ALWAYS make excuses for buggies and now are the sole recipents of Ohio’s new “late tax” for getting licences(Amish ever get those??).No prayer in schools but buggies all over our highways? Protect America.

    these amish drive thier buggies, wagons, or just riding a horse…of all ages. and they have no training on how the laws work. we have to go to driving school take test pay fees just to have a licence to drive. all they have to do is saddle up cowboy. they need to be trained on the laws of driving and have proper safty devices on there buggies…

    Insurance? License? We (notice I said we, not they) the driving public should force the buggies off the road. I don’t mean with our cars, I mean with law. The buggies are dangerous to all involved. This is the 21st century, the Amish should drive cars like everyone else or stay off the road, especially state highways.
