Proper installation of reflective tape markings

Trailer reflective tape is one of those little items that is relatively inexpensive, but helps a DOT road-side check to result in fewer items listed as defective, after a stop. Presenting a maintained, safe appearance can help convince the Officer that a broken tail light really will get prompt attention. Reflective tape is a night time safety feature that makes other vehicles aware of the length and size of a towed vehicle and may prevent an accident. Lights are also important, but trailer reflective tape can serve to show an oncoming vehicle the trailer behind you is there.
