Buy a pickup truck instead of a transport truck/tractor!

Ontario driver ticketed for towing 53-foot semi-trailer with Chevy Silverado








Quote:
Photos posted by the Ontario Provincial Police on their Facebook page show the 53-foot trailer was attached by a crude pin system



The vehicle also had a rudimentary air braking system installed, but it appears to only be hooked up to run the lights, not the brakes themselves. This means the truck’s brakes may have been stopping the entire weight of the trailer — yikes!
