Lost Toad

Surely plausible. Just as trailers have become detached as well. I'd like to know the circumstances surrounding this incident. Neglect, mechanical failure, etc.

I do know it looked like like the towbar and the hitch were still attached and the safety chains were hooked to the hitch. That would mean the hitch pin came out of the receiver. The chains should of been hooked to the receiver not the hitch.

What a launch the toad would have taken had the towbar dug in to the pavement nose first!

It's the law in most states if over 3000 lbs. it's smart to have a braking system with a breakaway feature for all toads. I know a lot of Moho people and they all use a brake system of some kind. Most in fact the vast majority use a brake system of kind.
