Safe trailer usage effects not only those pulling it, but everybody else on the road too. Trailers have the potential of becoming unguided missiles if they are not properly hooked up or cared for. Cargo that is not properly secured can quickly cause mayhem on the road.
The extra weight and length you are responsible for when towing a trailer can be done safely following these precautions:
For a bumper pull trailer, cross the safety chains underneath the coupler with enough slack to permit turning, but not dragging the ground. This will help to hold the tongue up if the trailer comes loose.
