Chris Paine’s 1st week with his Tesla

Chris Paine, director of “Who Killed the Electric Car” had an interesting first week with his Tesla. It involved getting pulled over by some curious cops and special attention from hotel valets.

Even I was surprised. In my rear view mirror I watched a Los Angeles Sheriff’s car pull out of the Chevron and turn on both its blue and red flashing lights to pursue me down Ventura Boulevard. It had only been hours since I eased out of the Tesla dealership in West Los Angeles and already I had a date with the police.

This was not the Burbank police who arrested Alexandra and Colette in 2005 for trying to stop EVs from being crushed. Nevertheless, I was a bit nervous as three officers approached. I had conducted a couple of acceleration ‘experiments’ during my drive from Santa Monica to Hollywood via Malibu, but it just seemed too soon to get pulled over.

“Your car is missing plates,” the officer said.
