I think a "toad" that's had some part of its systems purposely disabled so it can
be towed is still an "able-bodied" vehicle, and subject to laws that govern them.
Well, you might think that but the law says "Can not be driven under it's own power" so if the right half axle is not connected to the wheel (power wise FWD) it's the same, legally as if the axle is broke.
or if the drive shaft is incapable of transferring power to the rear axle on a RWD.
Lube pumps.. Don't acomplish that.
Still, on the towed I had (Axle lock equipped) the plate WAS lit by the tail light circuit so it was lit when I towed.
