An Indiana Amish community is taking measures to address horseshoe damage on Daviess County roads, according to WBIW.
A trio of representatives of the Amish community have reached out to government officials after Commissioner Mike Sprinkle said $1.2 million in recently paved roads have been damaged as a result of horse-drawn Amish buggies.
Leroy Stoll, William Graber and James Graber say they recently met with horseshoe suppliers to consider options that would mitigate road damage. Stoll says there has been an increase in buggy license plates to help road maintenance costs. The plates are $60.
Amish families are willing to experiment with rubber shoes, although Stoll is skeptical that will solve the problem.
