    I’m on the road in Pennsylvania and there was a car full of Amish teenage girls. Even the driver was Amish. I’m very puzzled.

    Can you describe the color of the car to us? Was there much chrome on the vehicle?
    I wonder, because sometimes the different orders of Mennonites, are permitted cars, but they have to have the Chrome removed and, at least I’ve been told, the color has to be black on a car.

    I don’t know what the licensing laws are like in PA in regards to age, but there is a possibility that these “girls” are engaged in Rumspringa or “Running Around”.

    I thought I read somewhere in Amish America that sometimes Amish youth are allowed to buy a car and hold a license before being baptized then relinquish the permit upon taking up full church membership. I could be wrong though. It all probably depends on their conservatism, or maybe they where New Order girls, I haven’t read about New Order Amish lately, but it’s possible they drive..
