    Those “brainless” users are the only reason you’re not getting your car jacked right now.

    Ok. My bad, I should not use that word. I always support our police. But should they remember to "fill up" a car?

    Of course they should!
    Perhaps they need to assign the tesla to specific officers so that they get used to the routing of plugging it in after the shift is over. Same as they inspect the car post shift, they’ll get used to plugging it in

    That way you don’t have a rotation of random officers who might use it once a month, so they’re not really getting into the habit of plugging it in.

    This is a blessing in disguise. A recent fatal police chase hit close to home. Maybe there should be a cutoff switch, too.
