Plus if you encounter any drifting the ifor will soon bog you down with little chance of backing out due to auto reverse brakes etc.


This sort of thing is why I'm not a fan of overrun brakes. It's another of those anomalies along with no MOTs for trailers and youngsters driving big tractor and trailer combos that seems to exist because the relatively few numbers mean the contribution to accident statistics is low.


I would like to see heavier commercial trailers with proper proportional control from the service brake and sensed ABS but suspect the expense would outweigh the advantage.
