I almost got run over by a Tesla!

A few hours ago I was walking across a parking lot...the driver came towards me and veered to left, so I walked towards the right, that's when he was just about to turn wide into a parking spot - right through where I was standing.

And all the while, I'm not thinking; "Shit, this guy is gonna hit me!" - nope - I'm thinking; "Damn! That is one beautiful car."

falloff

Seriously...it was so quiet too. I understand now why electric vehicles are a menace to the sight-impaired.

All in all...I say that if you're gonna get run over by a car...it might as well be something sleek and fancy, ...like a Tesla.

thumbs up!

Yeah, I'm setting my sights on something more worthy.

If I'm gonna get run over, Iwant it to be by either a Bentley or a Rolls Royce.

Go out in style. It'd be embarrassing to get to the gates of Heaven and explain that you got done in by a Kia.

This is a Tesla. A very fine automobile. Just about the safest. It's electric!

It's an omen Jedi. You and Tesla were meant to be together one way or another. It's stalking you.

Yep.

All you need now is a identical twin of SJ to pull up next to you and tell you to get in and drive.

Seriously, have you test driven one yet?

Thats one way to reduce ones carbon footprint....get killed by a tesla...lol.

I was at a drag race about a decade ago. There was an electric dragster there. This thing was FLYIN'! The whole while largely silent, aside frombthe noise the tackiness of the track was making. It really made me eek

For those who are interested, here's a quick overview explaining why the Model S was rated safest car ever made.

Glad you lived.

Wish I could afford this car, I'm so done with gasoline and the powers that be having their way with me because I need it to get aorund.

I don't think folks are buying them in my neck of the woods. I haven't noticed any, maybe one or two but I'm not sure. There are a fair mix of hybrid car brands rolling around here, even those little squashed up 2 seaters I see often, even in the hood. I wonder what's up with that.

There's a Tesla "dealership" in the Roosevelt Field Mall near me. I've seen Tesla's driving around before.

They're really nice-looking. I like them better than those Fiske Karma's (seen one or two of those as well).


Although no Fiske ever tried to run me over...maybe I should say I like them better. hmmm

There is one dealership, it's not near me. But still we're not that much of a sprawling metropolis that it would only be seen in certain areas. I think folks here take a while to warm up to new things.
