An "ish" good idea. Maybe. Although towbar failures weren't even
mentioned in any accident statistics I've seen, I guess we've got to
keep the paper shufflers in business.
What really IS annoying is the requirement now to provide proof of
registration (V5 - not even having the car with you at the time is
enough) when getting a trailer number plate made up. Apparently to
prevent fraud, and it would seem that sticking plastic letters onto a
shiny yellow plate in a random fashion is /completely/ beyond
professional car thieves and will stop car theft in a single stroke so
is well worth inconveniencing thousands of honest people.
