Beg to differ Justin. It is dangerous when people make incorrect statements on any law. "

This is from the Police National Legal Database:

"When the vehicles are attached solely by a rope or chain, the maximum distance allowed between the vehicles is 4.5 metres.

If the distance between the two vehicles exceeds 1.5 metres then the rope or chain must be made clearly visible within a reasonable distance from either side to other road users. This is usually done by tying a coloured flapping cloth in the middle of the rope or chain.

The person in the broken down vehicle must be a qualified driver as he is actually driving the vehicle. A further point is that if it is dark then the broken down vehicle must have its lights on as it would under normal circumstances."

Note: Vehicles are only to be towed on motorways, for the minimum distance necessary, to reach a place of safety where recovery may be effected by a recovery vehicle.

And from Avon & Somerset Police Website :

There is no minimum length of tow rope or chain but the maximum length is 4.5m. Any tow rope longer than 1.5m must be marked to alert other road users. One way of doing this is to attach one or more brightly coloured ties to the rope. The law does not specify the type of rope or chain to be used.

Could you post a reference for it please
This is a must if you drive onto the verge or muddy area , olso buy a couple of shacles to fit your screw in eye, good for getting you out of a sticky spot and not illegal if your pulling somebody stuck , but is if your wanting to tow along a public highway for a distance

That's one heavy rope!
Towing another car on a motorway??

You should be driving anywhere near the minimum speed of motorways when towing.
