With complaints over charging etiquette (EV drivers misusing charging stations) increasing across the South Island, the Victoria EV Club has stepped up with a simple but effective way of keeping everybody happy.
The club has received its first shipment of charging tags that drivers can leave on their cars to let other drivers know whether they are “necessity” or “opportunity” charging and if it’s okay to unplug the charger for your own use or it would be kinder to wait your turn.
Made of an all-weather material that allows charging drivers to add contact information if the arriving driver is desperate or the time when the car can be disconnected without causing an issue.
The club will be selling these cards at our regular coffee mixers beginning this Saturday, March 16th, from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm at Motorize – 2031 Malaview Ave. West in Sidney, BC.
Tags can be purchased for $3 each or two for $5.
Next up — a nice way of telling F-150 drivers that their pick-up trucks are actually allergic to charging stations.
