Sounds like a good way to need a tow and all new tires. I'd certainly help him out with the excess air he's carrying.

Sounds like a pretty stupid thing to do if you ask me. What does it matter to anyone if someone else chooses to buy a Tesla? Or a pickup truck? Both have their uses.

I strongly oppose that behavior.
Last week, I stayed at a motel next to a large Tesla charging store in Ketttleman, CA. The one odd thing was the guys walking to and from the charging facility.
Youngish guys with short dark hair and a beard. Tight black jeans and a tight puffy jacket with horizontal stitching. It was almost as if Tesla owners have a uniform.

"Protesting"? Protesting WHAT?

To be clear, I am not a fan of hybrids or battery-powered cars- I cannot support the environmental rape involved in producing the batteries for them.

But those inbred mouth-breathing booger-eaters wouldn't know anything about that. It looks to me like they're just looking for a way to be offensive. If they did that on my property, I'd tow their vehicle to impound so fast it would make their head spin, and trespass them for a year.

This is easy to stamp out.

BY ORDER
ALL NON ELECTRIC VEHICLES PARKED ON ELECTRIC CHARGING STANDS WILL BE TOWED AT OWNERS EXPENSE AND IMPOUNDED.

Tel:- 1 800 DICKHEAD.

A few tows and it will stop and the property owner gets 25% commission on each tow by the way .

Of course in other countries they are not so nice!!!
In Venezuela for example they remove all your tyre valve cores before you get towed.
Screws up the tyres as well being scuffed up being towed on the the hook!

The next article will read, Paddy gets his butt kicked by hill billies for vandalizing their trucks, and to top it all off gets his azz thrown in jail.
