Amish residents argue against using “slow moving” sign on buggies in Kentucky. As shown on a local KY tv news station.

.........Since the state of Kentucky was fresh in the news with the tragedy of the Amish children killed in a flood in feb, the Amish are in the news again in Kentucky only this time trying to fight placing slow moving vehicle signs that the state wants them to place on their buggies. I'm hoping cooler heads prevail with some sort of compromise being made to both sides. And in the end for the safety of the Amish alone, adding anything to make their buggies more safe with these signs as minor as it may seem to someone, i feel should not be an option. Like many Amish communities that have fought these type of safety mandates, most seem to have adjusted to it and accepted it in time. Richard from Amish stories


I've created this website out of my own interest in the Amish/Mennonite culture and of living in the country. Its a place for people who are interested in the Amish like myself, and its also a place to share Images of the beautiful country side that is all around me. my name is Richard, and I live very close to an Amish settlement here in Pennsylvania. This site is dedicated to my mother, who had started all of this by taking me as a child to Lancaster,pa from our apartment in the Bronx projects..........THANK YOU MOM............... Richard
