Written for Europe. Towing is treated very differently there and in addition, it takes the winter conditions into account. If you consider that you don't need any extra tests here to tow without speed restrictions, irrespective of conditions, it's understandable that some countries are more aware of the potential outcomes.

Just had new neighbours move in, clearly they have some business that has light trucks and large trailers and they provided no end of entertainment trying to reverse the trailers into their double width driveway. Hopefully it will get better.
Hi Tiliqua --- OH ! you mean like me, Caravan Park's afternoon entertainment, my problem is getting it close enough to the slab that the missus does not break an ankle.

The book has some entertaining parts and so many disclaimers, denial of responsibilities and other warnings that it has become a tome.
I AM IMPRESSED by your determination to read the hand book! o_O

You might also be interested in the extract of the manual that says DONT LOWER TYRE PRESSURES for SAND DRIVING - at least in the 2008 handbook for a 7L 3.0 V6 tdi.
This is odd and wrong.
At 18-20 psi its completely unboggable in dry sand !!
My 2017 book says the same...
