Handy Tesla feature helps avoid parking fines

The Tesla ‘summon’ feature has proved very helpful for one Wisconsin man.

Summon is designed to enable drivers to remotely move their car up to 39 feet in either direction. The original concept was for the car to park itself in the garage or drive up to its owner while in a parking lot.

However, in the US, Tesla owner Shawn Kennedy has been using the feature from the comfort of his office. With two-hour parking limits in force around his office, he has been using the feature to move his car whenever required in order to avoid receiving parking fines.

Of course, the feature only works in this scenario if there are parallel empty parking spots available, but an interesting use of the technology nonetheless.
