Hello everyone.
The issue has been resolved internally and the fix will appear in the future update. The solution goes as follows:

The avoidance system overloaded message appears whenever the buffer the system has allocated is not large enough to accommodate for every relevant entity.
Relevant entities being those tied to an event, excluding zombies and animals.
Because of this message causing too much confusion and annoyance around what it means and how it behaves, it has been adjusted for 1.10.

For starters, this message will no longer spam the message for every entity that is above the limit of the capacity, it will output it only once per loop of the avoidance system.
The capacity has also been increased to 1024 from 768, to allow more wiggle room and make it harder to reach the cap.
And finally, the message itself has gotten a revamp as well, to be more clear about what it actually means and give some hints about what might be wrong.

Old message:

[CE][Estimate] :: !!! Avoidance system overloaded :: Reached MAX_VEHICLE= 768 :-(

New message:

[CE][Estimate] :: !!! Avoidance system overloaded :: The amount of events currently on the map exceeds the maximum supported= 1024 :: Cars= # :: Wrecks= # :: Objects= # :: :-(

The # will be filled in with the amount of that category currently in the system.

To give more insight about these categories:
Cars: The amount of vehicles currently on the map
Wrecks: The amount of wrecks currently on the map (To be clear, not car wrecks, but what the community knows as "Helicopter crash sites" or "Police car wreck")
Objects: The amount of items currently on the map spawned by events (Such as the fruit, mushrooms, small stones and PileOfWoodenPlanks)
