By many accounts, owners of gas-powered cars often take up desirable parking and charging spots that companies and cities reserve for electric cars.
The biggest mistake was to put the chargers at the closest parking spaces. Why are we treating electric car owners like the handicapped? They should have put the chargers out at the farthest parking spots to limit the chances of ICE cars parking in the prime spots. And before you complain about making them walk farther, consider this obvious fact: They are using those spots to charge their car, which takes a lot of time. The time spent walking to and from the car is insignificant compare to the charging time.
A Google computer manager said he had sold 9,000 of the EV Etiquette Survival Packs that he created. For $15.99, a pack includes hang tags for vehicles that urge fellow drivers not to unplug others’ cars while charging.
BWAAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Seriously? People paid $15.99 for a sign?
More public chargers are the obvious long-term solution.
Is it? Where are you going to put these chargers? In existing parking spots? The more regular parking spots you convert to EV, the more likely it is that regular parking spots will not be available for non-EV people. This increases the chances of non-EV people parking in EV spots.
