Charged at Hagerstown yesterday and was amazed at the good signage in that outlet mall.
Maybe we could do a GoFundMe campaign or something to fund similar signs at other Supercharger locations. :wink:
Those wouldn't be legal in California. You need minimum size, lettering, and verbiage for it to actually prevent the property owner from becoming liable for the tow. Good start and/or bluff though. Also looks like that pole was backed into at one point, lol
Agreed. The sign must post the municipal code, phone number to retrieve the car, etc (at least here in California, but my guess is that similar language is required in most states). I still love it though, and no matter how nonenforceable it may be, it still could be a deterrent.
If it were up to me, the Tesla sign would say "Tesla electric vehicle charging" not "Tesla electric vehicle parking."
I used to live in a community that had "Parking for residents only. Towing enforced." posted at the entrances to all the (many, small) parking lots. Totally unenforceable, but it seemed to help deter people who either don't realize you need a certain minimum information on the signs, or just don't want to take a chance. Sort of like how just posting a picture of eyes makes people more honest: Â‘Big Brother eyes make us act more honestly | New Scientist
And there would be an additional warning that materials used in the sign have been shown to cause cancer :smile:
It's different in every jurisdiction, and most shopping center owners wouldn't want to alienate customers by having their cars towed.
Here is what Tesla is supplementing with in my neck of the woods. Better than suggesting it's okay just to park and not charge, IMHO:
Exactly what it should be. Honestly I wish they'd put ONLY this sign and get rid of the useless red Tesla one, it means absolutely nothing.
It's funny because it's true.
