Seems like anyone might think that and yet we all get so busy. Add to that most of us being in a rush and your compassion meter might switch off. For this reason the Maine DOT is kindly reminding us to be considerate of people traveling with animals on the roadways. I did not know that is was an actual law but since in many cases with our Amish community there are women and children at risk when things don't go as planned. So let's be kind and give a panicked animal a chance to regain control before we pass.
