Are you fit to tow?

Dorset Echo: Are you fit to tow? Are you fit to tow?

The Highways Agency has urged drivers to ask themselves ‘Am I fit to tow?’ Last year the South West had 1019 incidents involving a caravan, trailer or other towed vehicles on Highways Agency roads.

The causes of towing incidents include overloading the caravan or trailer, a mismatch with the towing vehicle, and poor towing technique.

Well, I have asked myself ‘Am I fit to tow?’ but the answer that I gave was that I am fit but don't have anything to tow.
Should I and others who don't have anything to tow be rushing out to buy a trailer or caravan?

Interesting point....My licence allows me to tow a trailer, but recently issued licences (5 or 6 years ago) do not allow this..Do some of these incidents involve illegal drivers? I'm not accusing, but just inquisitive.
