I couldnt tell you the LAW, but based on my experience in this state I would just advise to just use some common sense. I have been towing in this state for almost 20 years- seems like the cops here will overlook a lot. About the only thing I can recall is that they really dont take too well to a dead vehicle being towed down the road on a chain. Of course, I live and do most of my in state towing stuff in the southern half of the state, so things could be different further north.
