The officer thought the vehicle’s console was an illegal screen but, after a brief explanation from the driver, he realized that he was just very much behind the times.
The policeman pulled over the driver because of the computer mounted on the dash. At first, it’s clear that the driver actually thought the policeman was joking about the display and asked for his help removing it from the car.
After realizing that the officer really did think it was a computer mounted to the dash, he proceeded to talk him through some of the functions of the display in a polite and introductory way, noting that the touchscreen was the only way to change the air conditioning, view the navigation, and watch his speed.
It was great to see a Model 3 owner willing to educate the officer about the car, even in such an uncomfortable situation, before the police officer awkwardly shared that, “I’ve asked you enough stupid questions.” Before walking away from the car, he admitted how cool the car was as he bid the driver farewell — “take care, drive safely and … it’s pretty slick.”
