I have heard through others that is not legal in some states and provinces to leave the ball attached while not actively towing. Beats me, but my thinking is, if you hit your shin one time, lesson learned.

Also if it is not your truck and you hit your shin on it .... you are too close to someone else's truck.

Was told that when NE PA by the safety personnel at weekly safety meetings. Heard the ticket around $100 to $200. Took mine out. Sure the target were the out of state trucks. They were a couple of hands that said they got one. Think it was a secondary offense. Speeding was the main thing.

1969 f250 at a local tire store I was walking back out to it when a car drove in way to close truck rocked a little till the car stopped.
Sliced it open like a pop can....
Cops called, paper work exchanged we both agreed to pay for our own repairs.

Now that's pain.........for him.

Works great ripping open the grille on the idiot that pulls in too close to you in a shopping mall parking lot.
