Written answers (Question to Minister for Transport)

Road traffic law on the drawing of trailers by motor vehicles is set out in Part 4 of the Road Traffic (Construction and Use of Vehicles) Regulations 2003. The regulations contain no specific prohibition on the drawing of a trailer by a two-wheel drive vehicle and I have no plans to introduce such a prohibition.
