Tip #4: Drive Slowly with a Loaded Trailer
Be more cautious with a loaded trailer. Loaded trailers have a higher center of gravity and sudden speed adjustments may cause the load to shift, leading to skidding or a rollover.

- Large trucks with fully loaded trailers are 10 times more likely to roll over than those with empty trailers.
