FLORIDA

Once Again we have a loophole...

I spoke to this person and they allow homemade trailers.
They do not check the quality of the construction of the Trailer.
Once they get the vin number it's up to the owner to keep it in good
working order.
No rules on Safety Chains...
No rules on the Safety Pin....

Once again it is almost like anything goes on trailers that are just under 3,000 pounds.


Dear Ron,

Utility trailers are required to be registered. They are required to
have operable brake lights, tail light and turn signals. In addition,
tag lights are required to be visible up to 50 ft and of a white color.

Florida statute does not address inspection of hitches.

Thank you for writing and for your interest in traffic safety.
