All of the crazy new rules and regulations of anything usually originates from California and trickles east eventually.

Not does only does it go east out of California but north also. In BC we have lots of those ideas travel up here such as if your trailer is over 10,000 lbs you must have an endorsement on your license.

In Manitoba we also have to upgrade class of license. Had to do a written and road test. Haven't had to do that since I was 16. What made it difficult was you are supposed to do the road test with a trailer over 10,000# but have to have someone with proper license drive your unit to the testing facility since I didn't have the proper license to drive such a large trailer. Kind of a catch 22.
Also need special insurance on my truck since it's GVWR is also over 10,000#.
No one tells you all these things when you start this journey.

We lived in CA for awhile - not a real user friendly place. Seemed like lots of laws and rules but fairly lax enforcement.

Weight alone will be seen as negligence. Might not work in a criminal trial but certainly will in a civil suit.

And my Canadian friends wonder why I don't travel north of the Mason Dixon line! No reason could ever be found to get me into California either. I'm just too old and ornery to play silly games so some places can extract more funds.

Don't be afraid of VISITING California. The special license laws don't apply to visitors. Only to the special people living in the state. The 55MPH speed limit while towing anything will apply though even to visitors.

Same in Canada, license laws only apply to the people who live there. In Saskatchewan, if your truck and trailer weighs more than 5,000 kgs. (11,023 lbs) then you must register the truck for a higher weight. My truck and trailer grossed out at 12,050 kgs. (26565 lbs) so legally I had to license my truck for that amount of weight. I licensed it for 13,000 kgs (28,660 lbs) as it was the same price for any weight between 12,001 kgs (26,458 lbs) to 13,000 kgs (28,660 lbs).
