Trailer safety is important year-round, but we're shining a spotlight on it June 5-11 for Trailer Safety Week. Produced by the National Association of Trailer Manufacturers, this week emphasizes the importance of safe roadways by raising trailer safety awareness through education of end-users, dealers, and manufacturers on safe trailering practices.
Goals of Trailer Safety Week
Increase awareness of the importance of being committed to trailer safety
Educate end-users about proper trailer maintenance and usage
Create a stronger partnership and alliance between stakeholders of the industry including trailer dealers, manufacturers, and end-users
Purpose of Trailer Safety Week
Unfortunately, those who use trailers are often under-educated on proper practices, techniques, and maintenance. This can lead to unsafe towing procedures that can put everyone on the road in danger. Trailer Safety Week encourages dealers and manufacturers to connect with consumers and teach them about safe towing practices.
