Washington State is looking to institute a fine for ICE'ing an electric vehicle charging station.

The bill requires:

  • Signage making it clear that it is an electric car charging station, and that access is limited to those who are using the charging station
  • A parking fine of $250 for infractions

I wish that was the case in Canberra because we only have 5 ev charge stations and you can NEVER park infront of one
