Superchargers aren’t car parks, even for Teslas

In case the owner of the white SR+ parked in bay A1 at Thetford/Elveden for over an hour today is on here

Probably didn't know how to charge the car and thought it was wireless charging.

Won't forget when they were having these big delivery days and people started turning up one after another clueless about the cars basics such as locking, supercharging or reverse parking because the delivery teams didn't bother showing them so other people had to help them

Thetford Supercharger is its own section (by the recycle bins) and there's plenty of space in that section away from the supercharger stalls

Video here from a few weeks ago. There's a good overview of the area @ 3:40 and 6:06

Unless there are parking. Restrictions he probably just didn’t care then!

I think people forget that only a very small percentage of people bother to learn about what they are buying. They don't realise that teslas are a paradigm shift in technology. They wonder why they would need a demonstration and think they can get in and go. Probably even think they will get a normal key too and probably a small percentage of those uneducated even think you put petrol in... But yeh they will learn to rtfm at some point.

Completely agree with this...but UK law (maybe the law in general) is an odd thing and I wouldn't be surprised if you could be in trouble for touching someone else's property without their permission?!
Technically speaking you wouldn’t be physically ‘touching’ the car if the charge port opens with the button on the connector ;) however, I do not condone this behaviour! Lol.

If your going to be the one doing this then a technicality isn't going to bothering you as you will probably already be pissed off enough!
