Tesla police car

It had to happen at some point in time, and this could be it:

... it’s still just a demonstration vehicle at this point, meant to illustrate “the future of policing,” according to OPP Sergeant Kerry Schmidt, who revealed the car on a live stream.
Quote:
The Model X used here is actually a “generous donation from a friend,” Schmidt explains, and “may be what the future of policing looks like down the road,” but it’s not going to be used in service “because right now this vehicle has not been tested at the proving grounds for a police-rated pursuit vehicle”
So - it isn't operational yet, but once it is you'd better be careful; these guys are quick to bring charges
