The warm weather of summer means taking to the outdoors - be it boating, camping or simply tackling big jobs in the backyard. The result is a heavy increase in traffic on the roads. Often tagging along with the extra vehicles are the trailers - boats and campers that can put motorists at risk.
In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 20,000 people require medical attention every year as a result of crashes involving trailers towed by passenger vehicles.
These recreational outings don't need to go sideways - nor does whatever you may be towing.
