“New” Inspection Requirement on Trailers used in Business
If you have a trailer, defined by mass.gov as: "Any vehicle or object on wheels that has no motor power of its own, but is drawn by, or used in combination with, a motor vehicle" and that vehicle is used to make money, regulations now state that the vehicle must have its own brakes regardless of the vehicle size.
Local towing companies have reported an uptick in vehicles towing trailers being pulled over by the police. So, if your business is using a trailer without brakes, it may be time to consider installing them. However, in some cases, it can be more economical for businesses' to simply buy a new trailer. Either way, complying with these "new" regulations is a good idea for your business.
