I should have added that I would make sure the straps I used were strong enough to hold a zero turn during a crash at a reasonable speed.A wheel chock will be fine for driving around on city streets but I would definitely strap a mower down for hwy driving. It may take a little extra time but it will pay off big time if you have an accident at hwy speed.
Could not agree more. I got pulled over last week and the cop was a dick and gave me a ticket for not having straps on EVERY mower. But that being said, the law is the law.Should it be, yes! Would you get a ticket if a cop saw you without one, yes! Do i sometimes get lazy and not to it cuz it adds time, yes! Has a cop pulled me over yet for no straps, no! In my experience mower wonder on the trailer with no straps if you clipping along. I know if I got in an accident straps would only really help in a side impact, but it you roll over its not going to make a difference. It would take a lot for my mower to slide forward. If i got both mowers in my trailer and it takes up all the space i worry less about it cuz it can move a foot at most. That being said strap up, its safer, but personally I would not bother for a mile or 2.
Ya i have had cops follow me, pass me, watch me drive by, and everything. No one has said anything yet. Sorry for the mess of typos.Could not agree more.
