    A fyi for any Tesla owners in Richmond, London. Have just had my Richmond card updated to reflect owning an EV which means free parking in the borough. Tried it on pay and display and it works a treat, yet to try it on a barriered car park! Will report back when I do. Saved me £6.45 the other day for 2hrs parking.

    And if you park on a meter in Westminster, you only need pay for 10 mins to get 4 hours parking, which is nice.

    Anyone with an EV. Although in the course of a year when I worked in Paddington and parked my eGolf there every day I got about ten erroneous parking tickets...

    I'm sure LBRUT will screw you some other way - they still owe me £27 from when some incompetent idiot crawled up some bureaucrats arse - it soon became apparent that life is too short to get involved and try and recover it.
