I thought this was the "No Spin Zone" This whole thread and every other weight thread on this forum encourages one to not cross any weight or towing limit. I just suggested a way to prevent overloading similar to the way excess diesel emissions are controlled, by shutting the vehicle down. Do I think we as a society should do this? NO.

Second paragraph, Driverless Cars, I simply stated that when the driverless cars and trucks hit the highways, and they will, they will be programed to obey posted speed limits. How did you interpret that statement to mean I want to speed? Do I speed, Yes whether on the Golf Cart, car or truck

I cross trained with RMCP at 1 point. While beer drinking after school we talked a lot.
How about this, they set up vehicle inspection points on public roads because they can unlike in the US. For the purpose of inspecting vehicles. A guy talked about how many got mad when the vehicles where overloaded. They made them comply before leaving. It could be cargo or people left on the roadside.

What will happen when we get all these driverless cars on the road that are programed to the legal speed limit in any lane??? More issues, more government, less freedom.

Just my thoughts, no harm intended.

Just the way "I" read the statement. I also speed, but more go with the flow on two lanes as to not impede traffic.

While towing within GVWR is a good thing, but there are unfortunately situations where the ability is there. WHY does Ford still offer a F350 with a 9,900# GVWR? So one doesn't need to license as a commercial vehicle, even if it has a Camper and snow plow package. Same as on with a GVWR of 11,500#+, but if licensed as Commercial or over 10,000# can't be parked at home. Just a situation some are caught in.
