My wife and I love our MS. We live in the SF area. We love the social aspect of the TESLA family.
We love waving at other Tesla owners and often get a big thumbs up in reply.
However, yesterday a MS driver did not represent this amazing social network well.
My wife was trailering horses back to the Bay area from Gilroy and was delighted to see a MS coming up to pass her. She was talking to me on Bluetooth and I could tell she was grinning.
A few moments after finishing our conversation, she called me back to report that this MS driver passed her and abruptly pulled in front of her truck leaving nearly zero room for stopping if she needed to. She was really pissed that someone driving our favorite car could so poorly represent the Tesla community and potentially put her and our horses at risk.
She asked me to post this to remind Tesla drivers that we do represent this amazing group of people and to some extent Tesla. My experience is that most Tesla drivers drive safely. Just be aware that folks are looking and evaluating in this formative stage of the Tesla era. Do what you can to enhance that image through thoughtful and safe driving.
