    Just got copies of these two videos on a local Tesla WhatsApp group. It shows three teens throwing eggs at on-coming traffic here in NYC. The driver circled a second time to get a closer video capture. When he slowed down, they asked him if it was a Tesla, and asked that he roll down his windows (which he refused before asking them to Back Off). He also told them they were on video, but they may not have registered precisely what that meant.

    He took the videos to the police who are now sharing with the local school district to identify the teens. Unfortunately, in this area, kids start with eggs (which can block visibility and create accidents) and move on to rocks and other harmful objects. Unfortunately, I had to get involved in one of those incidents years ago, and it created a major community uproar because children were getting attacked as they came off of school-buses to go home.

    No respect at all. Leaning on the owners car as well as they’re trying to tell him to roll down the window. What a bunch of jerks. Hope they get caught.

    Somehow I doubt the school will recognize them.
