horse-drawn carriages

GLADSTONE, MI--   Michigan State Police from the Gladstone Post are urging the public to be aware of horse-drawn carriages and buggies in Delta County. 

Troopers say several Amish families have moved to the Cornell area and are traveling to Escanaba and Gladstone on a frequent basis.

Ridden, herded or driven animals are considered traffic under Michigan law and are treated like vehicles under the vehicle code. Riders or those who drive an animal are required to indicate turns, obey speed limits and stop at stop signs.
