Luxury vehicles, including Teslas, continue to be victims of vandalism in California

In recent years, owners of Tesla and other luxury vehicles have been victims of vandalism. From paint damage to scratches on the sides of their vehicles, these incidents reflect envy and various emotions. Although Tesla owners have the advantage of using the Sentry Mode software feature, which uses onboard cameras to improve security measures, some vandals are undeterred.

One of the most recent incidents occurred on Labor Day when a Tesla owner parked his car in front of the Millerton Marina in California. When he returned to his vehicle, he discovered a deep scratch on the side and checked the Sentry Mode footage, which showed a middle-aged man scratching the car twice in broad daylight. While the motive for the crime remains unknown, it underscores the fact that vandalism in California is a property crime punishable by a variety of charges.

However, this problem doesn’t just affect Tesla vehicles. Cases of scratches have been reported by Polestar owners as well as Porsche Cayenne drivers and others. Unfortunately, driving a luxury vehicle can bring unwanted attention and resentment to some people.

Luckily, Tesla vehicles come with the Sentry Mode feature, which provides free protection. Rivian, another automaker, also offers a comparable security system. Having these safety features on board is beneficial in the event of vehicle vandalism.

However, it is discouraging that people resort to damaging other people’s property out of envy or other negative emotions. The solution is simple: respect other people’s possessions and refrain from destructive behavior.

In summary, while vandalism against luxury vehicles, particularly Tesla, continues to occur, the presence of safety features such as Sentry Mode acts as a deterrent. It is crucial that society adopt the rule of respecting the property of others and refraining from damaging vehicles or other personal belongings.
