NYSSA Safety Trailers
Through donations and grants, NYSSA has obtained two enclosed snowmobile trailers and stocked them with Safe Riders safety materials. These trailers are available to all NYSSA Member Clubs in Good Standing for use at their events. To reserve a date for a trailer, please contact the NYSSA Office. Information will be needed about the tow vehicle to ensure that it is appropriate for towing. Tow vehicles must be properly registered and insured.

If an individual towing a NYSSA safety trailer has or is involved in an accident, it is that individual’s responsibility to notify the NYSSA office immediately after the accident, provide a copy of the accident report and any other pertinent information as soon as possible to the office.
