Going over gvwr can net you a fine starting at $73 up to $2500.

Since when do Sovereign States let automobile manufacturers write law for them?
Especially when you consider that half the figures the factory is giving you are, to put it nicely -- BS.
They just kinda make them up. One year Dodge makes up a towing figure out of thin air, the next year Generic Motors has to top it and then Ford insists they can out-tow them all.......
All of these claims without even touching the vehicle!!!
My old Expedition with a 300HP 5.4 was rated higher than my new(ish) F150...... And my F150 has a FAR superior engine, a much longer wheel base and, I suspect, better brakes. Not to mention the new 6R80 SelectShift is so far superior to the old 4 Speed I had in the Expo isn't even funny.
But the Expos was rated to tow 800lbs more.
Riddle me that......
But.... I guess that's Canada. The land of -- Whatever.
Not that Cops would ever lie to you. Heaven forbid. I'd like to see the Statute that Mountie was referring to.
And I suspect that any first year law student would destroy it.
