We have recently reported a series of strange anti-Tesla incidents in the Supercharger stations in the US, and it seems we have one more, as it seems that the Supercharger in Utah has been vandalized.
Mark Larsen, Tesla Model 3 owner in Utah, read on the forum yesterday that Tesla's inflator station in St. George, Utah may have been vandalized so he went to check it out.
He reported on Twitter]:
"The bastards tried to cut off a cable, then decided to break through all the plugs. Units 1A, 4A and 4B do not work; others do, but hardly. I hope the security cameras have recorded the asses.
He shares a few pictures of the Tesla Supercharger station damage Mark Larsen :
While Larsen says some of the chargers still work, Tesla recommends a charging station is used if you can see any damage on it.
This is not the first time Tesla Supercharger has been targeted by saboteurs.
A few years ago, a Tesla Supercharger was sabotaged on an important route just before the holidays, when charging stations see great use.
Recently, we saw a few pickup truck cases that took over the Supercharger stations in apparent protests against Tesla
They also showed aggressive behavior towards the Tesla owners who wanted to charge but otherwise it was not illegal to block station outside of several states that apply regulations.
In China, Tesla said he applied
In this case, damaging foreign property in Utah is a "criminal evil" and can be prosecuted as a crime or crime.
If the damage exceeds $ 1,000, Probably the case here, it is considered a third degree offense, and a vandal may face second-degree crime charges if the damage exceeds $ 5,000, which is possible in this case.
High power cables and connectors are quite expensive.
Come now, it's crazy. The pickup drivers, and now?
At a time when a group of high-power charging stations are shutting down because of a safety problem with a cable supplier, we also have to worry about people who sabotage charging stations?
I wonder if this will start to attract more and more attention.
Older people will recall in the early 2000s when a self-proclaimed group of anti-fossil fuel activists burned a Hummer truck and burned a Hummer dealer.
He attracted national attention and the FBI even called them "the biggest internal terrorist threat". I admit it may not be at the same level of vandalism, but it looks as if it rises to this, Will we see this thing against Tesla so seriously?
