The Magic Electric (Four) School Bus Giveaway Inspiration
All of the content in the video featured in the over-the-top first thumbnail below has captured my heart like no other has in years. The Magic Electric School Bus Giveaway that was inspired by Know You Know inspired me, an independent tech writer. I know it'll inspire you too, leaving you feeling good about humanity while pondering why mainstream media doesn't tend to cover stories like this one, and maybe even how you feel about Daimler going forward.
One of my first encounters with the fun-and-informative videos by Massachusetts-based Zac and Jessie from Know You Know was about the Tesla Model 3 Police Car in Westport Connecticut, a specially-wired first-of-its-kind EV right here in my home state that captured my attention as well.
I've also been learning more about the way inhaling diesel exhaust fumes affects health, especially the lungs and brains of the children these buses serve. Coincidentally, I'm quite the fan of Flight Simulators too, you'll see why I mention this once you watch the video.
Please share what you think of all this by using the comments feature below this article or the videos.
Here's the original video that inspired Austin to give via the Ava Lane Meyer Foundation:

Here's how Austin Meyer feels about Tesla not being allowed to sell in South Carolina, and an electric plane company he's investing in:
Disclosure: My family owns no stock in Tesla. Tesla doesn't advertise at TinkerTry, or anywhere else, and this is not a sponsored post. We purchased two Tesla Model 3s, replacing my 2006 Honda Civic Hybrid in December of 2018 and replacing my wife's 2005 Honda Civic EX in December of 2019. These big moves to an all-electric household were an expression of our mutual desire to go green, avoid gasoline, be safe, have fun, and save money in the long run. Mostly for my job, I drive a lot, 25,000 miles in 2019 for example, and I thoroughly enjoy sharing what I've learned with you. I hope you can tell!
