Likewise in British Columbia......
In one instance, one of our members had a problem with
the police where the towed car on the dolly was not
licensed OR in possession of a day permit.

In another case, another member was stopped by the
police because his P3 Rover was being stiff-hitch
towed by an SUV.  The registration on both vehicles
were checked.  The policeman advised that the car
could not be towed by that vehicle because the weight
of the towed vehicle exceeded that allowed.  No ticket
or fine was delivered - just a warning to unhook and
not do it again.

As it has been noted - check with local authorities
for the legal aspects of a tow.
