towing brace provides a safer means of towing a vehicle than a tow
rope or strap can provide.
Because a towing brace is a solid metal bar (which usually comes
in smaller segments which clip together for easier transportation)
it reduces the chances of the vehicle being towed running into the
back of the towing vehicle during declaration or descent.
Many towing braces come with a warning flag to warn other motorists
that there is a vehicle being towed.
