    I am envisioning some joy riders running low on battery so they stop at a spot marked charging station, but find that the golf cart doesn't have J1772, so they give up and walk away...

    Solution to Blocked SC Syndrome:

    The Nanny Car. By default every SC spot is occupied by a local 'beater' car. You go into the designated Nanny Store nearby and get the key to move it out of your charging spot. You move it back when you are done and return the key to the store. Who would not be willing to do this in order to get a free SC charge? Nanny Cars would ideally be electric conversions: low voltage DC jobbies with a few golf cart batteries, Or even retired golf carts. When the store closes the NCs are moved to other spots. The store will like this scheme as it brings more foot traffic into their store. Also a + to have local supervision of SCs.

    But if you do this, you are training people that it's OK for ICEs to park in those spots. But maybe you can pick up some cheap ex-lease Leafs for the job...

    Use orange cones. Simple, effective.

    Agreed. I think this would work well and is only a minor inconvenience.

    > OK for ICEs to park [ggr]

    Unlike seatholders at the Grammys these beaters would be well marked explaining process & store location. And of course this is for those real trouble spots. But it would be 100% effective against 'denial of service' attacks.


    > Use orange cones. [Doug_G]

    As long as they were filled with concrete (or depleted Uranium).

    Spots must be marked in accordance with the new law:

    1. Proper signage
    2. Green strips on the spot

    Don't the magic and practical joke stores sell fake "parking tickets"? That might get a few people to stop doing it

    I was ICE'd just yesterday by a Ford F150 in Woodinville, WA. It pissed me off.
