Towing Safety: It’s hard to resist the call of the open road, especially when you have a chance to connect a camping trailer or boat to your favourite fishing spot.
But before you hitch anything to your truck or SUV, make sure you consider safety tip #4:
- STAY WITHIN YOUR LIMITS
- PACK YOUR TRAILER PROPERLY
- CHECK YOUR TIRES
CHECK YOUR LIGHTS
The tail lights and marker lamps on your trailer may seem unnecessary, but they’re very important. In fact, the size of your trailer will determine how many tail lights and marker lamps are required.
Large trailers can obscure the tail lamps on your tow vehicle. If the lights on your trailer aren’t illuminated, other drivers may not see your vehicle, especially at night. Accidents can happen if the tail lights aren’t properly illuminated.
While in park, have someone stand behind the vehicle to check turn signals, tail lamps and brake lights are working properly.
