Canada Police Impound Tesla for Driving 110km/hr in 50km/hr Zone

Day after day I see reports of Tesla drivers caught doing double a posted speed limit, often ending in tragedy for obvious reasons (e.g. Ohio, Colorado, and California just this week).

Here’s a good news version from Canada, where police stopped and impounded a Tesla before more people died.

The incident occurred in the area of Cedar Springs and Britannia roads in Burlington around 6 p.m. Wednesday, according to Halton Regional Police. Police said the Tesla was going 110 km/h in a community safety zone in which the speed limit was 50 kilometres per hour.

Apparently this driver is being charged under “stunt” laws (immediate 14-day vehicle impoundment at roadside regardless of who owns it).

A similar story, still under investigation, was recently noted in Nevada. A braggadocio video was self-posted by a Tesla driver showing 83 mph, with his hands removed from his steering rectangle in a clear attention-seeking stunt.

Air Force officials are investigating a captain who posted a viral video of himself driving nearly 100 mph as he sped down a residential street in Las Vegas in a Tesla Cybertruck, according to reports.

Captain Matthew Wallace, who is stationed at Creech Air Force Base, could be seen using just his pinky finger to make dangerously rapid turns in a video shared to his X account on June 2. …’Check mate,’ Wallace said on his since deleted post.

Facing a social media backlash Wallace then lied and said police had authorized his stunt, which they quickly denied and denounced.

Police should thoroughly investigate and utilize the evidence here, especially given it was provided by the driver himself with intent to encourage others to break traffic laws with a Tesla. It’s paradoxical that law enforcement frequently relies on surveillance footage for various investigations, yet often disregards videos of Tesla drivers confessing to their crimes. Wallace’s self-professed criminal act in a self-posted video seems to meet these five criteria for admissibility:

  1. Authenticity: provably genuine and unaltered
  2. Relevance: content directly related to the crime being investigated
  3. Chain of Custody: procedures followed to document how video was obtained and handled
  4. Legal Collection: obtained without violating privacy rights or other laws
  5. Context: The context surrounding the video must be clear to ensure it accurately represents the events in question

He should be bounced by USAF and his Tesla impounded for stunt driving. What more do we need for Wallace to have charges filed? Based on extensive immoral actions thus far, I wonder if his next big move will be to dig even a deeper hole, to post that he did “not see” anything. Get it? Not see? Nazi?

It’s peak Tesla cult behavior for someone in the military to post videos of themselves intentionally committing crimes, endangering society with bad conduct, then ignorantly calling it “checkmate” with their swastika.

  1. This is another phenomenon I’ve seen – incidents of Tesla vehicles driven at high speeds. Is this also an FSD thing or just people showing off and / or breaking the law?
    How stupid and careless do you have to be to drive 110 km/h or 83 mph in residential areas or reduced speed limit zones? Those speed limits are for a reason.

    These people just don’t realize the physics of driving faster. Kinetic energy is 1/2 mv^2. Even a 5 mph increase makes a huge difference in stopping distance.

    Well, I’m no Elon fan and have never been but I’m still skeptical that he’ll ever be brought to justice.
