    Tesla Announcment: Ticket Avoidance Mode

    Haven't seen this posted yet...
    Taking advantage of its autopilot hardware, plus some ingenious use of aimable wind shield washer nozzles, our Tesla's now can avoid parking tickets.

    Well, that explains why some states are hell bent on slowing down Tesla! A complete loss of revenue ;)

    Love a company with a sense of humor!

    (Also really interesting to see a self-driving Model S......)

    The cop is totally frustrated, unfortunately, they will just mail you the ticket, once they have your plate number.
    Of course it's just an April Fools prank anyway :)

    One of the reasons I love this company. Can you imagine Mercedes , Audi, GM, Ford, or BMW doing such a thing?

    As an option? That would cost you more than a lifetime of tickets! Haha.

    I was laughing along with the joke until the last line: "Long forgotten will be the days of parking tickets; or, as we like to call them, receipts for premium parking."

    That just seems overbearingly smug and elitist, ending what should be a playful romp on a sour note. Or am I just being too sensitive?
