A local Model S owner just posted to our Arizona Facebook club that he called the police and was able to have an ICE vehicle ticketed for blocking a Supercharger stall in Casa Grande, Arizona. This may, possibly, be the first time something like this has been reported.
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!
The property owner/manager where the Supercharger is located was not involved. Such a violation is treated the same way as if someone were blocking a handicapped space, permission from or involvement by the property owner is not required.
