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

Time and time again...and again we find that the Police Departments help and or cover up the reason's why these trailers keep coming off the hitch and they do not want to answer our questions.....Why?  Why do they do such a poor job? 

If this was a Jet Engine from a Boeing Max 737-8 that "Detached From The Wing"  Would they also cover it up?
