    Unnecessary acceleration ticket

    I also have a clean record. This was the first time I have been pulled over in 16 years. I tried to plea down and was offered $250 fine with 2 points. I did not want any points. If they offered a fine with no points I would have paid my fine.

    its not just a small fine. $400 and 4 points will result in THOUSANDS extra in insurance over the next few years.

    Unnecessary acceleration ticket

    I went back and checked the time stamps and match with google maps for 1/4 mile (that the sheriff said I was hard accelerating for) and it took me 23 seconds to go 1/4 mile. That is slower that a geo metro and smartcar.

    Unnecessary acceleration ticket

    He was in an SUV. I am assuming a Ford explore but not sure. Will have to look at the dash cam.

    Unnecessary acceleration ticket

    it was a sheriff. And yes his description is BS because I would have been in handcuffs if I was accelerating for 1/4 to 1/3 mile. In the footage you can see I stop accelerating right after leaving the opposite side of the intersection. And cruise at 45. Which is the speed limit.

    If the ticket carries points then your insurance will be raised for the next 4-5 years. Usually the insurance is significantly increased so the true cost of the ticket can be 10x or more of just the ticket fee.

    Unnecessary acceleration ticket

    I wonder if I could point out that he seems to be prejudice and stereotyping Tesla owners.

    Unnecessary acceleration ticket

    exactly. If I was accelerating for a 1/4 to 1/3 mile I would have been in handcuffs.

    Unnecessary acceleration ticket

    I already denied their offer. It was still $300 and 3 points. Original ticket is 425 and 4 points.

    Unnecessary acceleration ticket

    I never made it over 40. The speed limit is 45. The cop even said I didn’t speed.

    Unnecessary acceleration ticket

    he was 2 lanes over. I went about half speed. Nothing crazy. Not like I was racing. There was a mini van on both sides of me.

    Wisconsin. Not to rare anymore. I see a few a day on my way to work.

    Unnecessary acceleration ticket

    I did save the footage. That was going to be my evidence but if I also had something about how EV traction control is more responsive to prevent tire slip.

    Funny you say that. The officers note says the same thing.

    Unnecessary acceleration ticket

    I got an unnecessary acceleration ticket in my model 3 AWD. After reading the statute this obviously is not true. This is basically a noise violation ticket (see below). I can easily argue that I did not create loud noise that would disturb the peace. I also know I cannot spin my tires but I am...

    How long did it take for you to get yours? They are telling me 10-25 days.

    Custom monoblock forged wheels Info

    Would these be considered safe for normal driving? I don’t plan on tracking my car but may go to the drag strip once or twice. It seems like some people are concerned with the integrity of these.
