If I was there I would loan you my valve stem removal tool....not condoning it, but what you do with it is your business
I'm not being serious, just saying what I wish I would do. You are of course correct that it isn't worth the hassle.... But it's fun to think about pissing them off for being intentionally ignorant.But what if that just encourages the person to start doing the same or worse to EVs? Seems like a race to the bottom to me. I would however happily park behind them and stretch the cable over if I really needed to charge, leaving my cell number with whoever is running the building.
OP, did you actually need to charge? I find some of these locations actually have very little use and they often take up prime parking spots. Not smart and no wonder people end up parking there in "wasted" spots. A case in point - at my office they installed four ChargePoint spots a few months ago right in the nearest set of spaces to the building. I have never seen a single EV use them, ever. It's kinda dumb having those spaces just sit empty all the time - it feels like there's an "if we build it people will come" when that's not the reality most of the time. I won't be surprised at all to see someone "ICE" them one day.
I have visited the Centre quite regularly and have asked building facilities about the EV parking situation. Essentially, Tesla helped pay for the EV spots along with the City of Toronto, 16 Tesla and about 14 other EV chargers. The centre/city didn’t want to have them as EV only and take away 30 paid parking spots from ICE drivers...yeah I know. So to compromise they are first come first serve. Yes, I know...backwards.
Incorrect. All spots taken last night and this morning. Well almost. Some 10 year old Mazda parked across two spots. So if you were going today for about 9am there were no spots available. There were two EVs including me.I hear that the parking spots are ICEd all the time and that no one cares to enforce parking, but there are 30 chargers to choose from so you’re still likely to find a spot.
