I am not going to take may ball and go home, I just won't bring the ball to BC.
I have to cross most of the North American Continent to get there anyway.
Plus I couldn't chance it with VW towing my Scamp 16'.
It doesn't seem to be compatible with ROW towing.
I would like to see the scenery etc, but I probably don't have enough time to see everything else before I get around to BC with a Scamp towed by a VW TDI.
I am sure it is beautiful.
If they go out of their way to irritate tourists traveling through then there will be plenty of space in the motels.

Probably don't want to travel through California where they have a 55 MPH limit for towing.

I have been to California several times and I don't mind traveling 55.
Perhaps they don't want my TDI there either?
Lots of times while in California I would be happy with 55.

Carol H has just completely informed us that BC is very strict with towing and use of almost anything in the car.
Usually the passenger takes care of these duties, but I look every now and then.
If the locals stop very many then they are paying a LOT of attention to what people are doing while they are driving.
Personally I don't text etc, but I do occasionally use Waze and other GPS and other apps that don't distract particularly and are very useful.
All I have heard of towing in BC tends to discourage me from traveling there is all I am saying. I assume tourists are not a very big percentage of the the local income.
No problem from me I just won't go there. Lots to see and do between the Gulf of Mexico and BC. Easy-Pesy.
Carol, you do a pretty good job of informing us about British Columbia. Thanks for the head's up.
As an aside I know the speed limit in California while towing and I have no problem with that either.I never tow over 62 mph anyway.

What I like about baseball is, if you're distracted, by say a book you're reading, or a crossword, or a Stellar Jay on the patio, you're not likely to miss anything.

On the Pacific Ocean I've never been north of Seattle and would surely like to go there. I was bummed at the idea that I couldn't hold a (so-called!) smart phone in my hand as a rear view camera when parking, which I grudgingly admit is indeed driving. Was that a big deal? Obviously not. Was I snarky? Yes, some, and it was dumb.

Thank you for providing the information.

Nifty trick I learned some time ago for parking downtown, is, you may be able to see the reflection of your vehicle and the one behind in the windows of the businesses beside you. I've used that to freak out the guy who was sitting in the car behind me, because I obviously wasn't looking in my mirrors.

No offence taken Alan.

I appreciate that its hard for some to understand the reasons behind some laws & why the people who live there don't see a problem with it. Trust me there is at least one south of me that I also struggle with understanding the how comes and whys as well

I always thought those windows were there so that I could check all my ve hikkle lights.
