Bill Introduced to Combat Road Damage

Feb 15, 2012

A bill recently introduced in the Kentucky legislature aims to keep steel, iron and wooden tires — typically found on Amish and Mennonite vehicles — off the roads unless they are covered by a rubber strip. The measure would combat rising road maintenance costs for local and state government, said sponsor Sen. Joey Pendleton, D-Hopkinsville. “We have a hard time keeping our roads up as it is,” Pendleton said.
