Andy Freeman, MD of Red Forge comments “It is not uncommon for vehicles like this to be up to maximum weight before any payload is added, in this case it is highly likely that the front axle has maxed out even with no payload. Unfortunately no sensible vehicle specification or axle load indication would have helped here, in this case the problem is sat behind the wheel!”
