Hi everyone, It is raining here so I have a little time to post be I do a little main. Last week I attended a seminar at Lesco, were the DOT had officers there to educate us on the regulations about pulling trailers. Here is just a few that I can rermember off the top of my head. 1. A trailer must have a working brake for every wheel. 2. A brake away switch must be in place. 3. All lights and safety chains must be in working order. 4. Commercial tags must be in place on the tow vehicle. 5. If the combined GVWR of the truck and trailer exceeds 10,001 pounds, semi trailer tags must be purchesed for the trailer. 6. The operator of such a vehicle must have a health inspection card. 7. All loades must be properly secured or tarped if you hauling lose material. This is all I can remember but trust me there is more. The officers stated that these are federal laws and apply to everyone who pulls a trailer to make a living. In my area, several landscapers have been stoped and fined for several thousnd dollars, so you may want to check into it yourself. Also, the officers stated not to put all your faith in the county clerks. They told us to contact the DOT and get the correct info. Hope this helps someone, because it kind of shocked me.
