Officials discuss horse-drawn buggy issues

State Rep. Aaron Miller recently conducted a forum in Lansing to discuss safety concerns and other issues involving horse-drawn buggies on roads throughout Michigan.
Miller invited fellow lawmakers, county officials and others interested in seeking solutions for safety and road-damage issues caused by the buggies.
Miller called the session a productive discussion about the safety concerns surrounding the use of buggies.
Some road commission members said they would not have issues with buggies if they were required to be registered by the state, as the registration fees could contribute to road and bridge repair. Law enforcement officials present said some of the younger buggy drivers do not obey traffic laws, but since state law does not address horse-drawn buggies, there is little in terms of enforcement that can be done.
