Horse Drawn Vehicles Will Now Need Safety Lights at Night
June 4, 2019
In the last five years, there have sadly been a few major crashes between motor cars, and horse drawn buggies. One accident even sent four kids to the hospital, and a horse died. Up to this point, there didn't seem to be many laws on the books really targeted at trying to make horse drawn buggies safer to drive at night.
But now, the state has worked in coordination with lots of folks, including Maine's Amish community, to strike an appropriate balance. And thankfully, that is now ready to go in place, now that Gov. Mills signed LD 198 into law this past Thursday.
