In reading the article I did notice a wee bit of bias
I would agree that the 6K limit is being "messed" with regarding the IRS rules, etc. One of the vehicles listed is 6005 LBS??? I have no problem with exploiting the tax laws for my benefit as long as I am not going to get in trouble for it. If the state DOT says 6000 LBS and over and I am running my 6005 LB Gross wt. vehicle with me and my bride in it with a bag of groceries I am under the weight IMHO.
I would like to see the court case if an officer tried to enforce that law on a vehicle that had a curb weight under the limit, but "could" carry up to the limit. If I were the stopee, I would demand a DOT portable scale before I accept the ticket. But that is just me
