How electric vehicle chargers will be like fire hydrants
It makes a lot of sense to reserve parking locations (like Zipcar does, for example), but then you run the risk of frustrating drivers of standard ICE cars, the way fire hydrants do today. If you don't make the parking spots near the chargers for plug-ins only, then what's the point of having the charger there? The cars that need the juice won't have access. With parking already limited in urban areas, setting some aside for electric vehicles is important, but also potentially difficult. Are any of our readers working with city governments on this issue? What's the consensus on how it's going to work?
