They claim to be doing this because heavier vehicles cause more damage to infrastructure such as roads and highways. This is true for big rigs, but not cars and small trucks!
They set max weight at only 6000 lbs. so this would affect vehicles such as the Surburban, F350 and up, Ram 3500, Chevy 3500 etc.
Now to the ridiculous part:
They are giving an automatic 1000 lb. deduction to EV vehicles BECAUSE some of them are over 6000 lbs., and they know it!
So, is it about road damage or not?
