Not the crispest photo in the world, but it still provides an interesting narrative. We snapped this photo on a truck and car-clogged road in Holmes County, Ohio last week. While the Amish population continues to grow here, so does the population of others. This results in increased car and truck traffic on the road, many which do not have separate buggy lanes. This semi was riding the bumper, so to speak, of a buggy on a busy state route. If just one thing goes wrong and this truck plows into the back of the buggy, there would be an instant calamity. So I always urge people - truckers included - to be alert on roads that have buggy traffic. A car or a truck is no match for a buggy, the occupants of the buggy will always lose. I would have to think being in that buggy with that freight-train sized truck breathing down your neck would be a bit frightening!
