Sneak Into An EV Spot In Washington, Get A $124 Fine
To crack down on less than polite drivers, or at least deter them from doing something stupid, the Washington State legislature has just passed legislation that warrants slapping a $124 fine on anyone driving a vehicle that can’t plug into an electric socket but then proceeds to park in a plug-in vehicle’s special parking spot. (I know, $124 is somewhat of an odd amount for a fine, isn’t it? I guess we just have to remember that this is Washington.)
The bill was passed 7-1 (what was the EV hater’s argument against it?), but it won’t be confirmed until Governor Jay Inslee signs it into law — which he’s sure to do.
