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.
IANL but they sure do sell lots of cargo racks around here.
The 4' rule is important for safety reasons.

I can't understand why my MPG's are so low..........
