Is it legal in wv to have the hitch in the receiver of a truck

Is it legal in wv to have the hitch in the receiver of a truck while druving and not towing a trailer?

I hope this message finds you well. There are no laws that would prohibit having the receiver in place while not towing in West Virginia that I am aware of...and I am very familiar with their laws. Moreover, after a brief search of their code as to towing as well as equipment on vehicles, I have seen no such law. To that point, if you were given a citation for such an offense, they are supposed to point to the particular statute that was violated.


The only scenario in which I could foresee a law enforcement officer requesting it be removed would be so as to prevent obstruction of the view of the license plate. That may be a legal and reasonable request...facts specific.


Let me know if you have any additional questions or comments.


Best wishes going forward.

It was supposed to be recently passed but it is probably a rumor. Thanks.
