My car got into a hit and run today after a car backed up and hit my Model S. My Model S was charging peacefully till the car slammed into it. I was on the curb talking to my friend and I saw it as it happened. I thought the driver would stop as he got really close to my front bumper but he kept going. I heard a cracking sound as his bumper pushed against mine. Sentri Mode got activated. I front headlights started blinking and the alarm went off. I got a push notification on my phone and Sentri Mode got the entire incident on the USB drive. I run after the car and yelling asking the driver to stop and not run away. It was so stressful.
Luckily, I got the face of the driver so I can push for charges; otherwise, my insurance will have to take the burden. Tesla team, I'm so grateful for Sentri Mode!! It's a life changer! Insurance carriers should lower the rates thanks to this feature. Here is the video for your reference. I can follow-up with what happens next if someone is interested.
