Ford F-150 on board weight system

Ford announced that the F150 will have an onboard weight system using LED lights . When one begins flashing you are overweight . When two light up you are good .

I think that will be a good feature. I wonder if that is a coming government regulation to have that 'over weight' indicator?

But if I wanted to tow something, say a teavel trailer and my 'over weight' indicator was on I don't think that would stop me.

Now if the truck shut off that would stop me. I agree with the breathalyzer to start your car to cut down on drunk driving, but not 'over weight' indicator to stop the truck.

Sure looks like 'big brother' is right around the corner.

They also up the max tow rating to 14,000 lbs. Good luck with that.

Putting a 14,000lb tow rating on a tiny half truck is crazy.

I know Ford is talking about that special F-150 with the HDPP option and probably 2WD single cab. And I know they are talking about pulling 14,000lb hay wagon out of a farmers field to the barn going 15mph on a dirt road.
