    Illinois “Anti-ICEing” Law Signed

    I wish we could call in tips for a share of the fine... The best part is this:
    So in Chicago that's like a $200 something tow and impound fee... :biggrin:

    Although I was pleased to read this as well, I can't imagine this really being enforced to any great extent. I'm sure this came about simply because IL needs the money. Still, it now does provide an interesting statement to include on any of those business cards people leave on the windows of ICE vehicles parked in EV spots.

    What we need is a snitch hotline. While us Tesla owners usually do not panic, I can imagine the range anxiety of Leafs and others that DO need those charging spots at Whole Foods, Walgreens, etc to make it home to their families... and much like the heartless baboons that park in handicapped spaces (without, of course, being actually needing of a space) this is an equally just law. I'd certainly support the inverse, for those who EV a gasoline pump...
