Since it is a fairly rare occurrence, often the offender will not be cited. Also a citation might not be issued since many in law enforcement don't know that part of the law, or they at least realize there is no way for the driver to remedy the situation until they get home.
Would have to agree, Ovair. Was down in Myrtle Beach and a news crew was doing an interview with a SC state trooper. He said they know people do it, but it is not legal in Sc, and if they see you and pull you over they would make you unhook the second trailer and leave it on the side of the road. Don't know if this was a state mandated thing or just that troopers' perspective. Maybe he was having a bad day

Don't know if Wisconsin has changed their laws yet or not, but in the early 2000's Wisconites could pull a fishing boat only behind a 5th wheel whith a special permit. Driving from Colorado back to the middle of Wisconsin, was never stopped when pulling the ATV behind. Never had a problem in the in between states either. Wayne
