To the Editor,

The Amish have been involved in a serious accident. This could be a golden opportunity for Fillmore County to request that the Minnesota Supreme Court review their decision that the silver tape is a good substitute for an orange Slow Moving Vehicle (SMV) sign. While the silver tape is effective at night, it is like the stars, only visible in complete darkness.

Perhaps the failure to display an orange SMV sign on a buggy could be an equipment violation and the buggy be impounded. The offender would need to pay fees, and provide an orange SMV sign to reclaim their buggy, but would not go to jail.

This would be similar to the impounding of unsafe trucks or taking vehicles from drunken drivers.

Religious belief of any group must not be allowed to endanger the safety of others.

Ask your county commissioner to start action.
