Toledo, OH (PRWEB) August 08, 2013
There are several Amish communities throughout the state of Ohio, making it necessary for drivers to know how to properly drive through these areas.
Horse-drawn buggies are slow-moving vehicles and often haul farm equipment behind them. This can create blind spots for the driver of the horse-drawn buggy and also give motorists significantly less room to stop their vehicle behind a buggy. Amish communities are also located on rural roads which are often more narrow than city streets, affecting a driver’s ability to maneuver their vehicle while passing. The loose gravel on the roadway can also pose a hazard.
The blog post published on the Charles E. Boyk Law Offices, LLC website explains how motorists can prevent accidents when driving through Amish communities. “Anyone who has taken a trip through Ohio has been through an Amish community at one point or another. It is important for drivers to know the simple steps that can keep their passengers safe, as well as those in the buggies,” said Attorney Boyk. “While it can be difficult at times to remain patient, it is imperative to do so.”
