Poor bastard is about to find out what an EV spot is.
Yep. Hopefully they're level headed and just take it as a lesson to pay attention next time or not take shortcuts in life.Poor bastard is about to find out what an EV spot is.
Lol. I am sure it all means something.I've had recurring nightmares about parking in a weird city and panicking about trying to remember where I parked. Then comes the chase where a mob is after me and I can't run fast enough to get away. Then I'm eating something and having a mouthful of teeth come loose. Finally, there's a basketball game where I miraculously discover the ability to levitate. Is that weird or what'/
Nope, never had that dream. Lots of dreams with naked members of the opposite sex, ironically people I know. It makes seeing them during the week amazingly strange.You left out the part where you're naked in public. Even Tuvok had that dream.
I had a similar scare parking many levels below ground at Millenium park in Chicago. Plus, since it was deep underground, there was no way to use GPS to figure out where I am, where I was, etc.My wife and I lost our car for 3 hours once in a Seattle hospital complex. We must have walked at least 5 miles visiting all of their many garages looking for a parking area called "Birch" (they were all named after trees). All the attendants swore there was no such area in their system. Finally we found one who knew where it was. I suggested they put a map in each garage (there were quite a few of them) showing the locations of all the parking areas, but they probably haven't. We would have been fine if we had taken the ticket with us instead of leaving it in the car.
Well, this story is an interesting contrast to something that happened in Toronto last week. An American tourist parked his Nissan Sentra in an EV space in a downtown office tower while attending a rock concert. Forgot where he had parked. His father, pissed off that his idiot son had lost the car, went on social media offering a reward for the discovery of the car. And sure enough, people went out looking and found the car.
In Toronto, the owner did not get a ticket, was granted a reprieve from paying the accumulating parking costs, and got a free bluetooth device to help him find his lost car the next time.
Is the electric charging free at the those electric parking only spots, or do you have to pay. I can see that if you have to pay with vehicle charging there would be a financial loss for the company in charge of the electric charging stations. Not so much if its a 100% free station, even though I agree with the owner or responsible of that vehicle getting a warning or violation citation for parking.While walking back from moving my Volt from a charging spot I see a white mini-van in one of the EV charging spaces outside my building. On the van's windshield is a ticket. Inside the van's windshield was a temporary parking permit. So, not only does the Colorado School of Mines ticket you if you don't have an appropriate parking permit, they'll also ticket you if you're not charging while in one of the six EV charging spots on campus. Since it's a State owned University that's a State parking ticket.
Thank you for the article. It just depresses me to see people like this. Youth often gets a 2nd pass at times but this youth needs to start developing some common sense survival skills. I grew up without GPS and just Mapquest, and I was grateful! No reading and planning my trip on a tiny ass map that's about to disintegrate in my hands from frequent folding in a cramped car cabin. Getting lost is not an option, and when I went for my first interview about 2hr drive away, I made damn sure I planned my route with alternates and practiced the route on the weekend and the weekday so I wouldn't eatup my pre-interview arrival time.Here is the article: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/07/22/teenager-loses-car-toronto-three-days-metallica-gig/
[Update] There is more to the story, Mr. Strickland, the teenage driver had lost his Nissan Versa once before attending a different concert. That time he dropped his spare key next to the Versa. Someone took the Versa for a short ride, he later found the Versa undamaged. Seriously, if you had a teenage son with a history of losing his car, would you want him driving to Canada to attend a Metallica concert, alone?
We can charge for free with a limit of four hours per day. However we have to pay to park anywhere on campus and there are different levels of parking, which is why I haven't been using the stations right outside the building I work in. That changes on Tuesday - I paid for the reserved parking starting on the 1st.Is the electric charging free at the those electric parking only spots, or do you have to pay.
