Not only safety chains but lights. It is not much of a problem in this area, but when I lived at West Plains, Mo. where there was a big stock market, not one 1 in 5 of the trailers I would see hauling cattle had working tail/stop lights.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

I took it a step further and placed that reflective tape around the perimter of the trailer. I am very paranoid about not being seen. WHen I was an officer, I had a lady run into the back of my patrol car even though I had all lights on. There are some pretty blind drivers out there.
Tractors are like watermelons: the RED is good and you throw away the GREEN.
