Did you catch the Today Show this morning? They highlighted trailer safety in a story about a father and daughter killed in a car accident because a trailer had been hitched without safety chains.

Watch the video 

They showed a real world demonstration of the difference safety chains make in an accident. In 1 test with safety chains, the vehicle towing the trailer was able to come to a safe stop. In another test, without chains, the trailer careened off the road and flipped end over end.

At the end of the Today Show segment, they reference NHTSA's guide for safe towing. We've added that link to our website.

Keep your customers safe. We have a variety of safety chain warning and instruction labels online at shop.decodirect.com.
