Hello again. Continuing my posts about my visit to the Amish land, I dedicate this post for their mode of transportation.
As I mentioned in my last post, The Amish House, the Amish people do not own or use cars. They only ride cars in extreme necessity and they would be in the passenger seat. Instead, they're main mode of transportation is the buggy pulled by a horse.
I noticed there are several types. Some are closed and some are open. Some are big and some are small. But what's unique to them is a little triangle placed at the back of the buggy telling veihcles behind them that this is a slowly moving veihcle. These buggies don't have special roads, instead they share the streets with cars. These buggies are also equipped with turn signals that are powered by car batteries.
Another interesting thing I learned was that they don't use bicycles, instead they use scooters. These scooters are physically pushed by one leg while the other leg is on the scooter. They actually look pretty cool. I think part of not using bicycles because the tires are made of rubber and they are not allowed to use rubber.
Well, I think this will be my last post on the Amish world. I hope you found them enjoyable and somewhat informative. If you like to know more about them, I highly suggest you visit Lancaster County in Pennsylvania if you're in the area. You should also try their foods, it's very good, especially the desserts. For more information, you can visit the Lancaster County website.
I leave you with these photos. Enjoy!
