Parking ticket :-)

Parking ticket :-)

Here's a good storey from today in Oslo, Norway.

A brand new Model S parked outside the city town hall on one of the dedicated parking spaces for EVs got a parking ticket. It read "illegal parking on EV parking space". LOL! I guess the traffic warden didn't think it looked much like the "motorized raincoat" (Buddy) standing alongside it! :-))) He should maybe have gotten it when noting down the license plate number starting with "EL"...

Sorry for not taking a pic! :-)

Was it plugged in? Where I live you must be plugged in while in an EV space. If not, you will be ticketed.

No I don't think you need to do that. You must however have this "dial" in the front windshield indicating how long you've been parked there:

These days, you need to be aware on different road violations to avoid parking tickets. Aparetnly, a Chicago woman has damaged a town record by accruing more than $105,000 in parking tickets, given over three years to a car that cost only $600. And now she is suing the town. But before readers get offended, read on. It looks like she really has a great case. This might help you pay off your parking tickets. Check this out: https://personalmoneynetwork.com

Same in the Netherlands. Not charging the EV is seen as ICE'ing (or let's call it EV'ing) and you get ticketed.
