California Tractor-Trailer Runaways

When a trailer disconnects from the cab of the truck, disaster is inevitable. California state law reads:

“When trailed, truck and trailer combinations shall be connected with a safety strap or chain which shall be of sufficient strength to control the trailer in event of failure of the regular trailer hitch or coupling.”

According to the law, “Straps of 1/2 -inch plow steel or chains of ½-inch , high-test steel, with equivalent fittings, are considered adequate. Fitting shall be designed so that they cannot become accidentally unhooked.
