Tesla Teases New Feature: Ticket Avoidance Mode

Tesla Teases New Feature: Ticket Avoidance Mode

On April 1st, 2015, Tesla introduced Ticket Avoidance Mode for Model S owners.

"No more parking tickets for Model S owners. Today we’re introducing: ticket-avoidance-mode. Watch how it works."

In a short video, the company demonstrated how it works. The policeman, who saw that the Model S was parked in a prohibited place, issued a fine, but when he tried to put it under the wiper, the car sprayed it with a washer and then began to slowly drive away. Of course, it was an April Fool's joke—forecasting a sense of humor we have since come to expect in the company and CEO Elon Musk.

Despite the fact that it was a joke, today we are once again discussing Ticket Avoidance Mode. What gives?

In a recent video, which Tesla presented on its YouTube channel, the first seconds of the video have a text hidden from the eyes of inattentive people. Among the list of inscriptions that change at a very fast speed, you can see the very words that hint at Tesla's new Easter egg: Ticket Avoidance Mode.

At the moment, it remains unknown what exactly this feature will enable and whether it will be intended for driver assistance or just for fun. However, we look forward to hearing from anyone who found this feature and how to use it.
