Unsafe trailer towing practices!


Thought some might want to see this. This happened one summer in front of my shop. Inadequate ball/coupler, no safety chains, no lights, no brakes, and to top it off.....NOT PLATED. It was carrying a load of road base. Quite a bit of weight. It was enough to write off the boys car. Good thing nobody got hit and/or killed. My boy just got to the shop about 5 minutes earlier, he could have been whacked.

Unfortunately almost anyone that can fog a mirror can get a driver's license.

Either it was photo effects or that dude was Flying into that parking lot. A reasonable speed might have mitigated the accident somewhat. Still an Idiot!!

No phot effects. That was the video camera on the front of my building. He was driving down the street and the trailer was bouncing quite rough being a solid suspension (no springs, solid welded, crude). It amazingly drove into my driveway like someone was steering it.
I actually applied to put it on America's Funniest Home Videos but they declined as there were criminal charges involved they said.
Darn I could of won $100,00.00 maybe.
