    What was the reason you got towed? Did they take your truck and trailer or just your trailer?

    They got me for no health card & non functioning trailer brakes. I now have the card and the brakes working.

    Don't break the law and have good equipment and they would not have towed you. lesson learned the hard way is not soon forgotten

    I have no beef with the dot. They wer'e just diong their job, in fact the cop was a good guy. I could have been fined $1000. but he let me go with a warning. Thankx for the brake trooper L.
