Pennsylvania has recently begun enforcing a winter weather trailer ban on certain empty trailers on Interstate-80.
They hope that this will reduce any chance of a traffic large pile up on the roads. A major concern is that winter weather effects like slick ice and snow will cause more trailers to slip off the roads.
While drivers recognize that these laws are for the benefit of all drivers on the road, many are eager for the spring weather to open up the roads once again. These laws will remain in place until the winter conditions subside.
Tractor-trailer laws differ per state.
