Towing a Trailer

back trailer

Trailers come in many shapes and sizes. Pulling a trailer requires extra care and attention because a trailer puts extra weight on your vehicle and increases the space you need to drive and stop safely. Trailer safety involves some simple and important rules. A trailer must be registered and licensed before it can be used on the road.

Driving with a trailer

When towing a trailer, you cannot accelerate as fast, or stop as quickly. Maintain a speed that avoids sudden stops and slow-downs. Be alert, increase your following distance, keep out of fast lanes of traffic and always use your signals when passing or turning.
