This is really a simple four act story.
Act 1: The Boring Company “touted the security and safety of its $53 million system”
Act 2: Contractual agreements were made.
According to a management agreement between TBC and the LVCC, the system is supposed to have “physical barriers [to] guard against entry of accidental, rogue, or otherwise unauthorized vehicles into the tunnels.” These include security gates on roadways into the system, and dozens of concrete bollards surrounding its ground-level stations.
Act 3: Oops. Once again a company associated with Elon Musk is full of hot air. They all should probably be rebranded to Hindenburg.
Less than two weeks after its official launch, The Boring Company’s Loop system in Las Vegas had its first security breach. On June 21, the morning of the final day of the International Beauty Show, an “unauthorized vehicle” joined the system’s fleet of Tesla taxis underground.
Act 4: Failed at prevention and detection, The Boring Company pulls taxpayers into picking up the tab for basic security response in their “closed” proprietary private system.
The Boring Company (TBC) called the Las Vegas Metro Police to handle the intrusion. “The driver of the unauthorized vehicle was cooperative and eventually escorted out of the system,” reads one email.
After $53 million and fraudulently touting security or safety measures, this sad system of putting Tesla into a tube couldn’t even handle escorting a cooperative unauthorized vehicle out.
