STAY SAFE AND LEGAL
Ensure your towing weight capacities are not exceeded
Failure to adhere to your maximum towing capacities may result in a fine, or in the case of an accident, refusal of the insurance claim and the possibility of further legal action. You also risk the safety of your passengers and other road users.
