This was just in out local newpaper today.

CALUMET -- Michigan State Police at the Calumet Post dispel a rumor about the illegality of operating a vehicle with a trailer hitch while not pulling a trailer.

Officials report that a rumor has been spreading across the Keweenaw that Trooper are ticking motorists for having a "Reese style" trailer on their vehicle with no trailer. While a bill was introduced in 2012 calling for restrictions on operating a vehicle with temporary towing devices, the bill never passed the house.

Police say that if a resident has received a citation for this violation, it is not legitimate and should be brought to the attention of the MSP Calumet Post.

This seems to go around alot but no law and I agree with the two posts

1. dont drive that close , silly people

2. once you wack your knee it comes off when not in use, now try hitting fifth wheel attachment, haha

In Ontario especially last winter with salt use the way it was you take them out , sledge hammers dont always work

Ontario people: To remove a stuck trailer hitch just wrap a chain around it and the other end around a semi trailer or light pole. Put in it drive and go!!!

What about a bike rack (with or without bikes)? Here's mine, folded down, with lights. But also folds up. And most people with these don't have lights.

In PA that might get you jammed up if it is obstructing the tag.

I tried pulling mine out by attaching to a semi trailer, my Ford pulled that darn thing two miles before the chain snapped
