By DAVE WERNER

At the November, 2010 meeting of the Franklin County Traffic Safety Board, it was noted that there have been a number of recent vehicle collisions with Amish horse-drawn buggies in Franklin and St. Lawrence counties. Some of these buggies have failed to display the Slow Moving Vehicle (SMV) emblem shown with this article. By Vehicle and Traffic Law, SMVs are all vehicles that operate at 25 mph or less, including tractors, self-propelled farm equipment, road construction and maintenance equipment, and animal-powered vehicles. In New York State, a SMV emblem must be displayed on all vehicles that travel 25 mph or less. The symbol is an orange triangle with a red border.
