Q: When traveling in Amish country, how do you know when the buggy in the buggy lane needs to turn right or left? What kind of signals do they use?
~ Pat Thompson
A. A lot of communities allow blinker lights on their buggies which are also used as turn signals much like any other vehicle. More conservative communities that don’t allow blinking lights on their buggies will use hand signals when they have to turn to cross a road.
