It appears that Senator Winters has decided to assist in arbitration between Kentucky and this Amish Group.

Sen. Winters trying to help find safety compromise

First District Sen. Ken Winters is hoping to help in a Graves County dispute over requiring Amish residents to display a florescent triangle on buggies contrary to their religious beliefs.

He said Amish residents have provided a photo sample to him of reflective tape that could be placed on buggies that would alert drivers to a slow-moving vehicle ahead that would not be objectionable.

“They show the kind of reflective tape they are using all around the exterior of the vehicle,” Winters said. “After dark, and I would be reluctant to be out after dark but, the reflective tape probably would be a better alternative. It is going to reflect headlights. We’re going to be taking a look at it to see if there is anything we could do.” More
