A valid reason to drive faster than allowed on the highway, a Tesla driver found Monday morning in Flevoland. A motorcycle cop stopped him after taking two speed measurements.
Those speed measurements took place on the A6 motorway between Lelystad and Almere, the agent himself reports on Instagram.
Corrected, he measured that the driver of a Tesla was driving about 30 km/h too fast. But he said the owner of the electric car had a ‘special excuse’. The statement can be read on a photo that the officer took from his phone.
‘I can drive faster’
The owner of the Tesla states that the maximum speed on the highways has been reduced to 100 km/h due to the emissions from cars. “I drive a Tesla,” the man explained, “so I think I can drive faster because I don’t emit anything.”
In any case, the offender was given a police report for speeding. According to the officer, he is now aware of ‘a bit of danger in relation to other traffic’. Incidentally, the Tesla owner also gave an argument why you should not drive too fast. Because with this sporty driving style, a Tesla simply has to charge more often: ‘to the detriment of the environment’.
