Dump Trailer, Utility, Tilt or Cargo–Proceed With Caution

No Comments

Let’s face it. Even though in theory we believe those quotes about life being a journey and “Enjoying the Journey,” sometimes we just want to get there.

That desire to get there is the reason police have the opportunity to write copious numbers of tickets to speeding motorist.

Certainly, you don’t want a ticket, but even of more concern is the safety issue. Pulling a trailer is tricky business at best and the more speed you add to that, the more complicated it can become.

Several factors play a role in adding to the complication. These include the extra weight, the way the trailer is connected, traffic, weather and road condition. Some of these factors you can’t control. You can, however, control your speed.

Remember that all maneuvers will take longer to safely accomplish when pulling a trailer. There are also legal stipulations on the speed you are allowed to travel while towing a vehicle.

In Oregon the law states, “Any vehicle towing a trailer, any camper, and any vehicle with a registration weight of 8,000 lbs. or more must drive in the right lane of all roadways having 2 or more lanes for traffic proceeding in a single direction.

When pulling a trailer in Washington, the speed limit is the same as posted for trucks.

No vehicle towing a trailer may be driven in the left-hand lane of a limited access roadway having 3 or more lanes for traffic moving in 1 direction except when preparing for a left turn.

In British Columbia speed limit for trailers is 80 km/h on provincial highways, and 50 km/h in populated areas, or as posted.
