Trailer hitches are often the subject of debate, whether they should be left in or not.
Some think they're illegal to keep attached unless a trailer is hooked on to the piece.
"There really aren't any bylaws or restrictions on when it can be on and how long it can be on," said Fort Saskatchewan RCMP Constable Janice Shoepp.
As far as damage or injuries resulting from keeping a trailer hitch on a vehicle, police said it all boils down to both sides allowing more room; those walking by and driving, to give each other a little more room.
Shoepp added the only time there is a law against the hitches is when it obscures a license plate.
Under the Alberta Traffic Safety Act, the fine for obstructing a license plate is $115.
