I just found out today it is against the law to have your trailer hitch in the receiver when not towing a trailer. Local and State PD are issuing tickets if they see your truck on the road with a hitch in the receiver. There is also a big push this month for pulling over all trucks towing trailers and checking for proper registration, plates, and inspection. Personally If I am going to be rear ended by another driver I'd rather have them hit the hitch than my truck but seems I can't do that anymore.
