Telsa Roadster Getting Ticket?

A picture is worth a thousand words. I attended the ThinkGreen Conference hosted by ThinkEquity today and yesterday (check out my coverage). Outside the conference venue, the St. Regis on 3rd and Mission, there was one of Tesla's $100,000 roadsters parked outside. Behind those velvet ropes is an all electric, carbon fiber body roadster that can do 0-60 in four seconds without making a sound. And while it can out-accelerate most Ferraris, this roadster wasn't actually getting a ticket. The cop was just standing out of the rain while he wrote up a ticket for a nearby 80s-era Honda. Decidedly less exciting.
