In 1971 J. Standard Baker Quoted " Drivers Towing Trailers  Are Four (4) Times As Unsafe As Those In Cars Alone! 

Questions Must Be Asked:

  • Did the vehicle have "Antique Tags On It"
  • When was Inspected?
  • If a new car MUST be inspected every year...and all other vehicles under 25 years old must be inspected then why not a crappy 25 year old...30 year old ....or even a 50 year old piece of crap..not be inspected?
  • Did the vehicle experience a major mechanical breakdown....that if it was inspected would have been fixed.
