(3)BRAKES ON ALL WHEELS.--Every vehicle shall be equipped with brakes acting on all wheels except:

(a)Trailers, semitrailers, or pole trailers of a gross weight not exceeding 3,000 pounds, provided that:

1.The total weight on and including the wheels of the trailer or trailers shall not exceed 40 percent of the gross weight of the towing vehicle when connected to the trailer or trailers; and

2.The combination of vehicles, consisting of the towing vehicle and its total towed load, is capable of complying with the performance requirements of s. 316.262.
The above quote is from the Florida Statutes. Hope that helps.

My question is this. Are trailers that were manufactured prior to the new law grandfathered in? Or are people supposed to be putting brakes on their trailers that are not conforming to the new law no matter what the age of the trailer.
