    Seems the South Bay Center superchargers may have a problem with vandalism... I can't recall a recent visit when at least two stations haven't been broken, despite Tesla actually seeming to be pretty responsive with maintenance.

    Back in June, I reported 2A and 4A as being broken; they were fixed pretty quickly:

    Today, it seems at least 3 pedestals are non-operational (4A, 4B, 5B), with at least one (4B) showing similar physical damage to what I saw a few months ago:

    Has anyone else noticed this sort of thing (at this location or elsewhere)? Any chance it's accidental damage?

    Isn’t that location right next to the IBEW headquarters?

    Maybe Tesla isn’t union-friendly.

    Local 103 is down that way, yes, but barring some evidence I don't know that I'd jump to those conclusions... (for all we know the union guys are the ones doing the work!)

    Isn’t that the whole point of starting a speculative thread on the Internet?
