Let's keep this going!
I hate people that park in EV spaces!!! - Page 7
Happily I rarely run into problems - there seems to be growing understanding / acceptance of EV charging, or I've been incredibly lucky and others are reporting less than in the past. I hope I'm right...
more these days are ModelAss stalling up charging space...
Well, it would be equally important for us to behave ourvselves before blaming the ICE occupying the charging lots. Anyway, there are always out-liners within the EV community.
Wouldn't it be wonderful if our Teslas' keys have this new frequency code that can deactivate those retractable tire spikes or retractable pillars (used to guard entrances against potential truck bombs)? And parking lot operators install those at charging stations so that they only retract when a Tesla or EV is trying to park there LOL
And just out of curiosity, does the Tesla delivery briefing explain to new owners about charging manners? If not, then they should so that no one can claim ignorance.
I hope Tesla sales do tell their customers, but my guess is, they don't but they should.
Two ICEs parked at Ma on Shan Center @19:30 on Sep 27. Called carpark office and they said the carpark was full and forced to allow them to park in EV spot. They shall improve the arrangement next time. Well, it is sometimes difficult to make a strong complaint in peak hours. Just to share...
Park next to them and charge?
Although can charge w/parallel park, it blocks the main driveway.
First time to park Sai Kong Gov. building where it has more 32A charging spots last night. At least two 32A charging spots were blocked by ICEs. The staff encouraged me to squeeze into one tightly spot next to the Alphard. My lack of gut /skill told me to park somewhere else.
Hello en-ev, the car park management staff should at least put a notice on the wind screen of the ICE rather than do nothing. If situations deteriorate, the competent authorities to be approached are Transport Department and Government Property Agency.
Can use one-stop-contact-point ev (at) epd.gov.hk. That is public and published here: Promotion of Electric Vehicles in Hong Kong | Environmental Protection Department
They will co-ordinate with the relevant departments.
Interesting that the staff said those EV charging spots are opened for both ICE and EV when I asked why no warning/notice were given to those ICEs blocking EV parking spot .
will share my experience with epd.gov.hk. Thanks!
btw, tesla changed the signs at hopewell to "60 minutes parking" instead of the old "vacate stall when charging complete". photos will follow.
To markwj, got reply to my charging experience @Sai Kung Gov. Office Carpark. Suggested improvement is taken, good the hear!
Thanks! en-ev! Great job!
