    Here in Pennsylvania,(where our elected officials are always looking for new and innovative ways to increase revenue), I’m kind of surprised license plates for buggies hasn’t been implemented. I think most Amish would readily pay the vehicle registration fee if required, though I don’t think having to display the plate on their buggies would sit well with very many of them.

    Bill it does seem like an untapped source of income, and I’ve always sort of wondered why only Indiana of all the states with horse-and-buggy populations requires it.

    I’m suprised that all states wouldn’t require it. They are all money hungry for something one way or another!!!

    I would assume the cost to implement that program would far outweigh the benefit.

    I vote no…

    If they plate a buggy, they should plate a bicycle.

    At one time Ohio required license plates on buggies, I know since I have a couple of Ohio buggy plates.
    Shortly after the plates were issued they no longer required the plates.

    As a follow up to my previous comment, the Ohio plates are small: 2″ x 4″ when compared to the PA plates. Though in 1974 the Pensylvania plate size was 4″ x 10″, currently 6″ x 12″, same size as on cars.
    I support license plates for buggies to notify next of kin in the event of a fatal accident.

    Currently Indiana is the only state that has buggy plates, I erroneously stated PA had plates as well, the other State was Ohio.
    Anyone interested in what the various buggy plates from Inadiana look like, go to ebay and type: amish license plates.
    I collect license plates from cars, but since I like the Amish a lot I also bought Amish plates.
    Anyone wishing to buy an Amish plate, don’t buy one with rust…
    Plates sell starting at $8 and up. If you reside in Indiana where the Amish live you should get one a lot cheaper. Probably for a couple of dollars, they probably have some in their barns…
    For some reason I like the red painted Amish plates.

    I don’t think that the Amish should have liciense plates because it could be against there religion. It wasn’t that way in the 1800’s or any other time. My opinion is that the state’s are just trying to find a way to suck the money out of people

    Of course they should license buggies and their wagons as well….they use the roads and bridges they should help in paying for that use….everyone else does….
