    Yes I have done it a few times. In the past you got away with anything.

    Not sure legalities, it has all changed.

    It depends with weigh of each trailer, weight of tow vehicle, heavier trailer in front and brakes or type of brakes on trailers and what licence you have.

    It's not straight forward, even the cops get confused.

    Any speed over 100km/h, the fixed cameras go ballistic, but never got a fine. Camera must pick you up as a truck.
