“Poor planning on your part does not necessitate an emergency on mine.”
I was looking on plugshare recently doing some early planning for some possible trips in regional NSW.
One thing that I noticed that the comments in a few negative "check ins" felt a bit off and I thought I'd see what the forum views are on this.
Scenario is small regional motels/hotels who have put in a Destination Charger for their staying guests use only.
Non customer rocks up with 2% battery and starts using the charger. Going off the write-ups, it usually ends up in a barney with the manager/owner who explains that it's only for customers. Driver doesn't like the answer and appears to act like a pork chop and leave negative reviews of the establishment on social media.
My view is that this is highly destructive behaviour. It's likely to lead to the owner wondering if installing the charger was worth the hassle.
Please don't do this. These establishments have shown a bit of foresight and installed an EV charger to attract customers as a point of difference over their local competitors. Don't make them regret it
Anyone have a different view?
