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.

Did you know?

  • Large trucks with fully loaded trailers are 10 times more likely to roll over than those with empty trailers.
  • Loaded trailers require 20 to 40% more braking distance than passenger vehicles to come to a complete stop
