(AP) A second western Kentucky county has begun prosecuting Amish men who are refusing to put slow-moving emblems on their horse-drawn buggies as required by the state.
Three men have been charged with the misdemeanor in Grayson County, according to The Courier-Journal.
One man was convicted earlier this month, and charges against the other two men are pending. Grayson County Attorney Clay Ratley told The Courier-Journal that the prosecutions began after the Kentucky Court of Appeals turned down challenges to the law in June by Amish men in Graves County, who said using the bright red-orange triangle is prohibited by their religion.
The men belong to a conservative sect of Amish that avoids bright colors in their dress and the appearance of modernity, such as vehicle signs. They have asked to be allowed to use gray reflective tape on the buggies, but state law mandates the use of the orange triangles.
