Owners Reminded to Have Trailers Properly Licensed

Motorists operating trailers in the U.S. Virgin Islands must have a license plate affixed to their trailers, according to Police Commissioner Henry W. White, Jr., and Bureau of Motor Vehicles Director Jerris T. Brown.

White stated that the law will be strictly enforced by the V.I. Police Department on St. Croix, St. Thomas, and St. John, and added that periodic checks will also take place on Water Island.

All trailers require one rear license plate to include, but are not limited to, transit trailers, low boys, semi trailers, horse trailers, boat trailers and utility trailers, as well as trailers used in landscaping, according to a press release issued Saturday by the VIPD.

According to V.I. Code, Title 20, Sec 334 (b), “the trailer must also have an affixed light to illuminate the license plate at night.”
