When all is said and done, US version CR-Vs have a 1,500 pound towing limit. If you thin you can violate that and get away with it, go right ahead. But be aware that, in the event of an accident, you are legally liable both in civil and criminal court for damage to property or injury to persons when it is found that you are in violation. Which means that your hotdogging could get somebody killed, and you won't get away with it. You could wind up in prison. How smart would you feel then?
In Texas, DOT and DPS actively enforce this, and they will pull you over and pull out the portable scales and check everything. If you are over your limit, your vehicle will be impounded and you will be cited. Before it's over it will cost you big bucks. Not worth it. Also dangerous, to you and all around you. Not only that, but you can be held liable in civil court for publicly promoting violations like this when they cause an incident. You may not be in Texas, but I'd bet there are laws on this wherever you are. Also, most of these regulations are Federal as well as State. Got a smart-mouth comeback to that?
Stupid is as stupid does.
