Cruising thru Oakland on a mercifully traffic-free I-580 early this morning I saw the distinctive headlights of another Model 3 approaching from the rear. Anticipating the ‘howdy’ nod or wave, I turned my head his way as he passed. Did he ‘howdy’ wave? Did he nod? No. He was much too busy TEXTING, head down, phone in both hands, both thumbs furiously pounding the screen. Autopilot was presumably doing a fabulous job keeping him centered in the #1 lane as he obliviously carried on, running slightly over the speed limit, with a string of annoyed commuters backed up behind him.

We already have a techno-dork image to overcome, even without that nonsense.

We'll I'll never be that guy. Just got my second warning from an unmarked police car that I left in the dust launching at a traffic light. Thank you Officer, I won't exceed 3.2 0-60 and keep it under 162mph in the future
I could be wrong, but I don't think there's a law about how fast you get up to the speed limit. I do that once in awhile if I'm first in line at a traffic light. I don't push it to the floor, but just fast enough to leave everybody else behind. It's fun.

People thought it was funny when George Clooney used to leave everyone in the dust when he drove an EV1. I doubt they feel the same about me when I do it.
