While it is not every day you see a Tesla, sighting one trying to avoid a pothole could be quite hilarious. A Twitter user, @Shutabug, stirred massive reactions online when he shared a photo of the electric car driving around a puddle-filled crater in upper Africa.
Many tweeps said the driver was only applying wisdom so he does not spoil the car and have it sent to the US for repairs.
There were also people who said that the design of the vehicle is not suited for the African continent.

Meanwhile, Briefly News earlier reported that a man and his friend caused a big scene in Lagos state and it was an interesting drama to behold.
In a video that has since become sensational content online, he drove a Tesla to a petrol station. Before the car was driven into the station, the man already anticipated how funny the reactions of the people around would be.
At the pump, the attendant kept asking the man to re-park so that his tank opening would face the dispenser.
After much ado, the man revealed that the car is an electric one and does not need petrol to run.
