Motorcyclist Caught Smashing Off Tesla Model 3 Mirror


The cameras of a Tesla Model 3 have captured the moment a motorcyclist in the U.S. broke off a mirror from the electric sedan while driving on a motorway.

Tesla Model 3 owner, Brandon McGowen, was traveling along a highway in Lincoln, California when a motorcyclist, riding a Suzuki, gradually merged into the left lane currently occupied by the Tesla. A video showcasing what happened leading up to the incident shows that the motorcyclist only just entered onto the highway before changing lanes in front of the Tesla driver.

After a few seconds of riding in the left lane, the motorcyclist slows down to a reported 50 mph (80 km/h) and fails to change lanes even as the Tesla driver inches up behind him. When he does move over to the right lane to let the Tesla past, he expresses his anger by waving at the driver. Mere seconds later, he accelerates up alongside the Model 3, sticks his hand out and hits the mirror, breaking off the plastic cap.

While the front-facing camera of the Tesla Model 3 isn’t of the best quality, the motorist says the California Highway Patrol has used the footage to identify the motorcyclist and are “moving onto the courts.”

As a motorcyclist myself, it’s a shame to see how some bad cookies like this biker can give much of the community a bad reputation. I can assure you, we’re not all like this and it is possible to enjoy a high-performance sports bike and an all-electric Tesla Model 3.
