    ICEd Picture Thread

    I thought it would make sense to start an ICE'd picture thread. I took this picture last night.

    Idea: small (fake) camera that has a sensor. When a car gets 10 feet from the camera (e.g. - pulls into the space), the camera flash goes off. I would say that this would be a tremendous deterrent, particularly to those of us who have red-light-cameras in our municipalities.

    What do you call it if you park your Model S in the ChargePoint spots at the grocery store just to block ICEs from parking there but are not charging? There are 4 spots where I go most of the time and are always empty or filled with pickup trucks. I've started parking there so at least an EV is taking up one of the spots. I wouldn't park there if there were other EVs charging as I wouldn't want to block the spot. I'm only there for a few min anyway.

    Or, the parking enforcement group of the city get to doing their jobs. :P

    Makes me think of a fun offshoot for the TV show Parking Wars. hehehe Can you imagine the arguments they would get from ICE owners caught in the act on camera trying to defend their position?

    I'm the type of person that would put Aligator clips to the charge station and put the wires under my hood if I had an ICE. If they were really common, and I was all pro-ICE I would probably get an AC->DC adapter and charge my Pb-acid battery with the charger.

    OTOH, somebody getting clamped risks blocking the EV spot for hours longer.
