This is an important question, and as an accident attorney, I suggest you check your vehicle’s maximum load capacity today, to find out how much it can safely hold. Most vehicles post the maximum load capacity limit in one of the front door jambs. If it is not listed there, look in your vehicle’s manual. The load capacity includes the driver, passengers and all cargo.
Many people are surprised to learn how easy it is to overload their vehicle with people, cargo, and pets, without knowing it. This is a safety issue that puts all in the car and on the road at risk, as an overloaded vehicle is an accident waiting to happen. Operating a vehicle that is overloaded is dangerous because it is less stable, takes longer to stop and causes the tires to overheat. Overloading a vehicle makes it prone to tire blowouts, roll over accidents, rear end crashes and other serious accidents.
Be safe and make sure you are not overloading your car – Check your vehicle’s load capacity today!
