    From a comment on Jalopnik: I work for Tesla. This was a staged shot for an internal website, not a PR stunt or a real bust. The CHP is right around the corner from our HQ and they visit here occasionally to see what we're up to. It turns out that they actually have a sense of humor. We're pretty careful when driving on public roads and no one has gotten a real ticket yet.

    Somebody else on Jalopnik noted that the first speeding ticket ever written was given to an electric car.

    Yeah, I know.
    Still thought it made a funny pic.

    So no one in an EV1 ever got a speeding ticket?
