Unfortunately we read about buggy accidents too often- we frequently encounter buggies and there HAS been accidents where sun is a factor in blinding the drivers- the roads twist & turn, hilly, etc- far too many buggy accidents & I have read our papers say they have increased since cell phones-
Also, the young Amish have these pony carts- I am not for those being on the same roads, that big diesel trucks use- it seems far too risky, and I am surprised their parents allow this- I realize they learn very young to handle ponies & horses but they are not easily seen and it's just such a danger-
