Hay Ride Trailer
Note:  We have access to over 2,000 similar news reports of these types of accidents.

This is an extension of issues with unregulated utility trailers.  These utility trailers are also used in hay rides and parades.  This October I have recorded over 7 accidents involving these utility trailers being used on hay rides.  They don't have working taillights, no inspections, very little training and they can be made homemade.
