    I'm curious, who's been forced to purchase a BEV?

    Someone with lots of electricity and very little petrol?

    By the way, your tagline "Penguin- the other white meat." Shouldn't that read "the black and white meat?" :)

    does that imply plugin owners have brought their own folley upon their own self ? Then who do we blame for the multiple 1970's gas lines ICE owners ?
    .... I think I follow the logic .... let me try it ;
    1930's era economic depression ... hungry people standing in soup lines ... and our proper response ought to be,
    "I'm curious, who's mothers been forced to have all you hungry people?
    Stupid me ... and here I was thinking pathetically predisposed people were opportunities to show consideration, grace, etc ... when in fact I should have been pointing out their folly.

    I took my wife for here Physical Therapy in Beverly Hills tonight. I usually park in the lot that has entrances on both Beverly and Cannon. I was down to just about 1 mile of range showing so I was hoping to charge. When I got there all four parking bays were full with three Teslas and a Volt but not one of them was plugged to the chargers. There are large signs that say that if you are not connected for charging purposes you will be ticketed but they don't often seem to enforce that and EVing a parking spot is becoming really common in this area.

    Could you have double-parked and made the charge cord reach?

    Nohthe closest space was a long way away and double parking would have blocked the entrance and I would have been towed for sure. I went to another lot close by

    Sometimes it's one of our own ruining it for others.

    and maybe some stickers that say EV parking only, you know, to stick the valve cores to the drivers window.
