    i just got warned about that, if you don't have sides on your trailer at least 36" you must tie the w/b & rider down.:mad:

    nope and 99% of the local LCO's don't either. none of them ever mentioned getting ticketed for it.

    No. Probably should but just seems too time consuming to me.

    I always tie everything down, the last thing I need is to get into an accident and have a 600 lbs mower hit me in the back of the head or worse fly off the trailer and hit somebody else. I have also spent too much money on equipment to have roll around on the trailer and get damaged. I use the cam-lock straps it only takes me a few seconds to tie and untie.

    i cant imagine anybody not doing it. And why would they admit not doing so. Like Ray&Cristine say.

    I don't believe I've ever seen any one do it around us.
