Trump VP Pick Honors Elon Musk's Entrepreneurial Spirit

Trump VP Pick Praises Elon Musk: A Throwback to an Older Generation of American Entrepreneur In an era where innovation is often eclipsed by political theatrics, the recent remarks from Ohio Senator J.D. Vance, Donald Trump’s running mate for Vice President, shimmer like a beacon of nostalgia for the golden age of American entrepreneurship. Musk, the maverick behind Tesla and SpaceX, has not only redefined industries but also ignited a movement that resonates with the audacity and spirit reminiscent of the titans of industry from yesteryears. A Nostalgic Acknowledgment Vance’s comments were not mere platitudes; they were a clarion call to recognize the entrepreneurial grit that Musk embodies. He referred to Musk as a “throwback to an older generation of American entrepreneur,” evoking images of innovators like Henry Ford and Thomas Edison, whose visions transformed our world. This perspective is particularly poignant as we navigate a world where the landscape is often dominated b

Tesla Supercharger ICE-ing: How to Combat the Ongoing Issue in 2023

As a Tesla enthusiast and owner, it's always frustrating to arrive at a Supercharger station only to find that all of the spots are taken by gas-powered cars. Even in 2023, the phenomenon known as "ICE-ing" still occurs, much to the dismay of Tesla owners everywhere.

For those who may not be familiar, "ICE-ing" refers to the act of internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles parking in spots designated for electric vehicles, particularly at Supercharger stations. This not only blocks Tesla owners from charging their vehicles, but it's also a blatant disregard for the environment and the future of transportation.

It's disheartening to see that even after years of education and awareness about the benefits of electric vehicles, some individuals still refuse to acknowledge the impact of their actions. Not only is ICE-ing selfish, but it's also a dangerous practice, as Tesla Superchargers are designed specifically for electric vehicles and using them for ICE vehicles can cause serious damage.

But what can we do about it? As Tesla owners, we have a responsibility to speak out against ICE-ing and to take action to prevent it from happening. Here are some ways that we can combat ICE-ing and ensure that Supercharger stations remain open and accessible for electric vehicles:

Educate others

One of the most effective ways to combat ICE-ing is through education. Many people may not even be aware that they're parking in a spot designated for electric vehicles. By politely informing them of their mistake and explaining the importance of designated charging spots, we can help prevent future incidents of ICE-ing.

Report ICE-ing incidents

If you encounter an ICE-ing incident, be sure to report it to the appropriate authorities. Many Supercharger stations have signage indicating that only electric vehicles are allowed to park in designated spots. If an ICE vehicle is parked in a Supercharger spot, take photos of the license plate and report it to the station manager or local law enforcement.

Advocate for change

Another way to combat ICE-ing is to advocate for change. Contact your local government officials and urge them to pass laws that make parking in designated charging spots illegal. You can also reach out to Tesla and other electric vehicle manufacturers to encourage them to take action against ICE-ing and promote awareness of the issue.

Support alternative charging options

In addition to Supercharger stations, there are many other options for charging electric vehicles, including home charging stations and public charging stations. By supporting these alternative options, we can help alleviate some of the demand for Supercharger stations and reduce the likelihood of ICE-ing incidents.

As TeslaDan, I am committed to doing my part to combat ICE-ing and ensure that Supercharger stations remain open and accessible for electric vehicles. By educating others, reporting incidents, advocating for change, and supporting alternative charging options, we can make a difference and help build a more sustainable future.

Trivia: Did you know that the first Tesla Supercharger station opened in California in 2012? Since then, Tesla has built thousands of Supercharger stations around the world, making it easier than ever for electric vehicle owners to travel long distances.
