As you enter the greater Holmes County area, you will encounter horse and buggy traffic, typically traveling from 5-7 miles per hour.
Take extra care, as buggies can be extremely difficult to see after dark, or in rainy or snowy conditions. Typical Holmes County roads are hilly, full of curves, and blind spots.
Anticipate left-hand turns or possibly anxious horses that have been broken from race tracks to buggy use. Leave room between your vehicle and a buggy stopped at a stop sign, as the horse may back up slightly after stopping.
It is illegal, on a road marked with a solid yellow line, to pass a buggy or slow-moving tractors unless they are traveling at less than half the speed of the speed limit. In that case, with extreme caution, clear visibility and sufficient distance, Ohio Code allows for safe passing.
