Multi-State ZEV Action Plan Still Shooting For 3.3 Million By 2025

Counting the cars that go across the Brooklyn and Golden Gate Bridges every day doesn't exactly sound like fun.

Apparently, there's no place in Baltimore's city-management handbook (or probably any other city's, for that matter) that describes what to do when somebody goes medieval on an electric-vehicle charging station.
