Allows a vehicle to be towed by another. This loosens the towed vehicle's brakes and turns its steering wheels toward the towing vehicle.

Supposed to be used together with a rope connecting both vehicles.
Multiplayer:

If a player enters the towing vehicle, the towed one will try to change its locality to be local to that player. This might be problematic if there is another player already in the towed vehicle. It is recommended to not have anyone in the towed vehicle!
