If you are looking for a new thrill and you happen to be around Wales, check out Bounce Below .

The language creating the ban was added to the bill at the last minute by a legislator – who has received campaign contributes from the Michigan Automobile Dealers Association – without any chance for public comment. It isn’t the first time, and it likely won’t be the last that a state has put Tesla in the crosshairs.
