House Bill HB 36 [PDF link], has been filed by Maryland Delegate Clarence Lam for the 2017 session in Annapolis. This proposed anti-ICEing legislation is very similar to last year's HB 839 that I testified in support of (with amendments) in the House Environment and Transportation Committee. That bill passed the House but died in the Senate. The bill requires “green pavement markings” in addition to a sign that meets applicable requirements in order to be enforceable. Sign and Green Pavement Markings Specified A sign designating a plug–in electric drive vehicle charging space shall: (1) Be at least 18 inches high and 12 inches wide; (2) Be clearly visible to the driver of a motor vehicle entering the plug–in electric drive vehicle charging space; (3) State the maximum fine that may be incurred for a violation; and (4) Meet any applicable state and federal requirements for parking signs. (D) A plug–in electric drive vehicle charging space shall be indicated by green pavement markings. Towing Provision Included (1) A privately owned parking facility may have a vehicle that is stopped, standing, or parked in violation of this section towed or removed in accordance with subtitle 10A of this title. (2) (I) A parking facility owned by a local jurisdiction may have a vehicle that is stopped, standing, or parked in violation of this section ticketed, towed, or removed if authorized by local law. $100 Fine for ICEing A person who violates this section is subject to a civil penalty of $100.
