Luckily our family car hasn’t collided with any [Amish buggies] yet.

As Sal Fiorentino stated in the Letters from the People on Sept. 29, “This is dangerous.” If all other drivers of slow-moving vehicles are required to have reflective triangles on their hay wagons, etc., then why aren’t the buggies also required to put them on when they are using the highways of New York State?

I’ve nearly collided with a few when driving on Route 12 from Watertown to Clayton for monthly meetings. A slow-moving vehicle triangle on the backs of these buggies would solve the problem.
