Saline County Sheriff’s Office Press Release


HARRISBURG, ILL. – The Saline County area has a higher population of Amish and the Amish
share the roadways with other motoring public members.
While most motoring public rarely have an encounter with Amish on the roadway, motorists
should be alert to the horses and horse drawn vehicles on local roadways. One issue is when
motorist come up on a horse drawn unit at night is to dim their lights.
The bright lights can cause the horse to be drawn to the lights, so motorists are asked to dim their
lights when meeting or passing a horse drawn unit on the roadway.
