  • Yes, as a matter of fact I thought it was the law.

  • It is the LAW in all States. My vehicle is wired for towing either way. I had to do this to meet DOT requirements.

  • What I saw yesterday was a temporary set of lights attached to the front panel, but it just showed a blinker and break lights.

    Do you mean other lights that help identify it as being in tow are supposed to be there as well?

  • Blinker and Brakes are all that are required.

    I however have a banner that states "IN TOW"

  • A banner would certainly help. I have seen people make fun of us who do a double-take but at 70 mph on interstate that could, and probably has been a killer.
