    Drivers need to slow down and be more cautious. People are just in too much of a hurry. How tragic for this family to lose a child because someone was probably driving too close.

    Since I don’t know all the facts, I’ll make no judgment about the tragedy, but when I read your statements: “This accident occurred in Hillsdale County, Michigan. The Amish population in this area is quite conservative and they do not display the orange safety triangle. So in return County Commissioners won’t erect the yellow horse-and-buggy signs on area roads,” the commissioners should be held at least partially responsible. There is absolutely no excuse for not posting warning signs of horses and buggies on the roads.

    By the way, was it road commissioners instead of county commissioners? As I understand it, in Michigan the road commissioners are appointed by the county commissioners and it is the responsibility of the road commissioners to take care of the county roads. That responsibility includes having the proper signs posted.

      Lowell, I agree with you completely…If the newspaper report is accurate (always a dicey proposition:) then it is the county commissioners that are stonewalling on the signs. And if this is the case its completely irresponsible, they can’t abdicate their responsibility for road safety as a tit-for-tat against the Amish not displaying the safety emblem….

    The Commissioners need to stop with it and put up their signs. Lives are being lost because they want to “prove a point”. How rediculous! Put up the road signs commissioners!
