10. Defective, incorrect or missing safety chain/cable

You must know the importance of safety chains and cables, the type that must be used, as well as the condition they need to be in, and that a vehicle has this major defect when a safety chain or cable is missing, is the wrong type or size, or is noticeably damaged or worn out.

Procedure:

    • Inspect the safety chain(s) to ensure they are hooked and crossed (when two chains), and hooks are secured with a secondary hook.
