Amish Object To Bright Safety Triangles On Their Buggies, Looking To Draft A New Bill

March 28, 2012

FRANKFORT, KY. — A bill to provide an alternative for Amish buggy drivers who object to using bright safety triangles on their vehicles was approved Tuesday by the House and is headed to Gov. Steve Beshear.

Senate Bill 75 was approved by a vote of 75-21.

Rep. Johnny Bell, D-Glasgow, who had sponsored similar legislation in the House, said the Senate version had only “minute differences,” including permitting the use of one-inch-wide white or silver tape instead of the two-inch white tape authorized by the House bill, and he recommended its passage.

Amish object to safety stickers on buggies, concerned it may affect wind resistance.
