Don't Honk at the Horses!
One of the many holiday pleasures in New York City is a horse drawn carriage ride in and around Central Park. But, did you know that there is a law on the books governing contact between motorists and horses? Under Section 1146 of the Vehicle and Traffic Law "every driver of a vehicle shall exercise due care to avoid colliding with any horse being ridden or led along a public highway". And remember not to blow your horn when approaching or passing a horse, for fear of spooking the horse!
