Driving the Amish


Denise George's Amish neighbors' religion doesn't allow them to own automobiles, so she drives them to town every now and then. They give her gas money, and sometimes homemade goods and crafts. Many people would say she is just being neighborly. But not the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission. The commission sent letters to George and others warning them that they are violating state laws against carrying passengers for compensation by giving lifts to the Amish.
