    A few days after reading a similar article, I reached out to my congresswoman (Elise Stefanik) asking if there is a similar statute or law on the books that would penalize owners of ICE vehicles for doing that. I am yet to hear from her office, but I suggest you write your congress person in order to raise the level of awareness.

    Thanks for taking that initiative, Pedro.

    Note that parking enforcement is mostly a local government thing. I can imagine things Congress could do but you might have more luck calling your city councilor, county legislator, state senator and state assembly member.

    To quote a line from Gone With The Wind, "Frankly Tesla I don't give a damn *  if you get stores or not ( you are closing them anyway are you not?) ...I just want YOU , TESLA,  to help us get access to our fuel by helping, funding,  assisting, initiating class action lawsuits or other legal means to cause the NYS DMV or appropriate county, state, local entities to put into place laws such as mentioned in article below."   

    Unless there is a clear penalty for ICE-Holes   blocking access to our fuel then it will go on and we will continue to be a joke in their eyes.

    "According to our member, while he was charging he witnessed an ICE vehicle pull into a Supercharger space that had a sign saying "EV only". The Tesla owner approached the ICE vehicle's owner and politely asked the owner to move his car and even suggested a few spots nearby. The ICE owner responded rudely, saying "there's nothing you can do". Well, that's not really true...

    The Tesla owner called the police and cited Arizona Revised Statute 28-876, which reads as follows:

    28-876. Parking spaces for electric vehicles; civil penaltyA person shall not stop, stand or park a motor vehicle within any parking space specially designated for parking and fueling motor vehicles fueled exclusively by electricity unless the motor vehicle is powered by electricity and has been issued an alternative fuel vehicle special plate or sticker pursuant to section 28-2416.
    If a law enforcement officer finds a motor vehicle in violation of this section, the law enforcement officer shall issue a complaint to the operator or other person in charge of the motor vehicle or, if an operator or other person is not present, to the registered owner of the motor vehicle for a civil traffic violation.
    A person who is found responsible for a violation of this section is subject to a civil penalty of at least three hundred fifty dollars. Notwithstanding section 28-1554, the civil penalties collected pursuant to this subsection shall be deposited in the state general fund.

    I confirmed with our club member that he stayed throughout the ticketing process and confirmed that the offender was fined $350 - same fine as for parking in a handicapped spot. YES!"


    Best way to train people is through their pocket book. 

    * Actually I do give a damn. If stores help the proliferation of TESLAS then we will outnumber ice cars more quickly...  but then again TESLA did say it was closing stores.  Not sure what to think on this issue with conflicting information.
