just physics, while im sure it did stress the toyota a rolling load like that, isnt all that hard to move, watching the add, i was figuring the toyots was going to break traction and spin a tire long before it gave up pulling, it didn't, i routinely pull our dozers around one of our bigger ones a d-8-r, when sitting on the lowboy with tractor attached all ready to go is 140,000 lbs plus, and i pull it regularly, in the mountains with no problem, but my personal best is pushing a loaded 18wheeler up an incline where it was slipping on wet dirt, -with my 1980 chevy 1 ton 4x4 dually, another truck tractor had tried to pull it, but as the 2nd truck had no trailer, he had no traction either, the chevy push bumper centered on the trucks trailer icc bumper, so i dropped in in 4x4 low range and eased into it, heck it went right out! the rig wasnt dug in or anything, he just couldnt get a bite in the wet ground

as to a dot cop, i would imagine since we know who owns the shuttles, and the security that is usually around them any dot cop was making himself invisible as far as writing tickets, he might find himself perminatly doing brake inspections on loaded cattle trucks, were he to decide to do his stud-muffin act and whip out a ticket book, lol
