FRANKFORT — The House on Tuesday gave final approval to a road-safety bill meant to accommodate the beliefs of Amish Kentuckians by allowing them to mark their slow-moving buggies with reflective tape instead of the standard orange triangles.
The Amish reject man-made traffic symbols because, among other reasons, they believe that their safety on the roads is directed by God. The refusal of some Amish in Western Kentucky to use safety triangles on their buggies has led to court action.
The House voted 75-to-21 to approve Senate Bill 75, which proceeds to Gov. Steve Beshear for his signature or veto.
