Vancouver Tesla owner tracks car thief in real time while on phone with 911 despatch


Who can resist such seductive invitation

Not much harm done, thanks to Tesla being tracked in real time by owners


It seems that getting Tesla stolen can be a fun experience for owners


So many options available, I'm glad no one got shot, the owner got her car back and the thief will get his day in court
I first read the above quote as:

"The Pinkowskis debated contacting Tesla to kill the car’s driver remotely..."

If only! :eek:

Mild zapping would be more fitting in this case

I can already see a future in which owners of borrowed cars can remotely transmit audible warnings to drivers, asking for their car prompt return.

If there is a lack of compliance with the verbal warnings, owners can start delivering a series of zaps at increasing voltage, until required compliance is achieved
