A few months after getting our all-electric Nissan Leaf, I was incensed to see seven of eight EV (electric vehicle) parking spaces next to chargers in Salem's Chemeketa Parkade filled with gasoline powered cars.
Not surprisingly, the part I found most interesting was his mention of me.
Jim and I exchanged some emails about EV parking and why we sold our Nissan Leaf to buy a Chevy Volt. He sent me a link to a piece on Green Car Reports, "Like the Plug, Not the Range: Leaf Owner Trades in for Volt (Ampera)."
I hope the Leaf succeeds. Sales are pretty slim, though.
They'll be even worse if electric cars don't get the designated parking space respect that handicapped spots do. So please: don't park in an EV charging space if you don't have an electric car.
