What an appropriate time to see this vanity plate, as we meet the challenges of a medical emergency (not involving either my wife or myself but someone else). After a long day dealing with the situation, I chose takeaway for supper. Returning home from Pizza Hut, I came upon the car at the stoplight on Florida Street at El Cajon Blvd.
I pulled out Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra and shot the Featured Image through the windshield. Vitals: f/2.4, ISO 640, 1/35 sec, 70mm (film equivalent); 7:07 p.m. PST; composed as captured. Typically, I obscure the numbers and/or letters but what privacy is there to protect with something so bold and timely as crisis. Oh, yeah, it’s rememberable, too.
So my question: What is the disaster for someone with the means to drive a Tesla? Is it license plate shorthand for Climate Crisis, because the words together are too long? Maybe electric isn’t what the owner expected: limited charging stations; dissatisfying battery life; short driving distance; philosophical opposition to Elon Musk, for what he has done to Twitter. Oh the choices there are.
