    As I’m sure you know – they have these signs all over Lancaster County as well. I am amazed every time I drive down Rte 340 at how fast folks will drive – on that heavily populated w/ horse-and-buggie road. The speed limit is 45 yet it is not uncommon to see folks driving over 60. I’m even more amazed that most of the culprits are locals.

    Amish Country tourists drive too slow, locals too fast

    Locals in Amish areas seemed to be the craziest drivers–in Ohio as well. So Dave I think we see it the same way.

    Tourists usually go the other direction–too slow–which can also cause problems. I saw one stop–literally stop with traffic going by– in the middle of one of the major byways, in order to shoot a photo of an approaching buggy. That sort of stuff caused a major accident in Holmes County in the 90’s, and regrettably that wasn’t the only time. I guess your tourist time will be calming down pretty soon (relatively speaking of course)?
