New Guide for Understanding State/Federal Laws Governing Motorsports Trailers

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

SEMA has created a new website resource to help the motorsports community understand state and federal law governing trailers and tow vehicles. The website provides guidance on how racing enthusiasts can avoid citations for a trailer that is too long, a trailer that is not properly registered with the DOT or for other related issues. The webpage divides the resource material into three sections: a comparison of state laws, folders containing laws/regulations for each individual state and an explanation of federal laws triggered by commercial activity or vehicle weight. The material is posted on the SEMA Action Network’s (SAN) resources menu under “motorsports trailers.”
