Very pertinent point Neil. I was pulled in by the Rozzers directly behind Clam and watched as some VOSA waller with a clipboard and hi-viz walked around his rig and tapped each trailer wheel/hub with a toffee hammer.
As she was doing this, Rozzer commenced chatting to me through the open window: 'Sorry to pull you over sir but some of the Pwhelli boys have disconnected their brakes so we're just checking all boat trailers. I can see just from looking at yours that you're ok and will be on your way in a minute, or two.'
Girl with toffee hammer never even got to me before rozzer dispatched me on my way as soon as Clam pulled away.
