ST JOSEPH, MICHIGAN— The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) has revised its lighting and marking of animal-drawn equipment standard.

The scope of the document, ANSI/ASAE EP576.2, Lighting and Marking of Animal-Drawn Equipment, now includes specifications for pony carts, whereas the previous version contained recommendations only for animal-drawn wagons and buggies.

Use of the revised recommendations will improve the visibility of pony carts when operated on public roads.
