I don't think cargo carriers are legal here either. We are allowed an extension of no more than 4 feet, but it does not specifically permit a cargo carrier. The extension law seems to have been written in a way that would suggest someone hauling long pieces of lumber would be OK if it didn't hang out more than 4 feet.

Are the cops in Poland that picky? Can't you get away with stuff? Here, most people ignore the laws, at least the details of the law. There are very few cops around here in the countryside.

If you follow the rules for a trailer (lights, registration) it seems you should be able to confuse the law officers enough to just use it and get away with it.
