We live in a region where it is not unusual to share the road with an Amish buggy. PennDOT encourages drivers to allow a margin of safety and remember that horses are not always predictable. If you come up behind a buggy, slow down, do not honk the horn, and stay back. At a stop sign or light, leave 10 to 12 feet between your vehicle and the buggy.
