Unser #A11 kümmert sich auch um Schwergewichte:
Hätte der große Blaue tatsächlich die Ladesäule angezapft, wäre vermutlich
in den umliegenden Haushalten der Strom ausgefallen.

A Tesla Model S owner found some relief to charge their vehicle over the
weekend after Police in Berlin, Germany craned a neighboring Ford pickup
truck away after it was found blocking a designated electric vehicle
Polizei Berlin [
] noted on November 9, 2019 via Twitter, they had successfully removed a
blue Ford pickup truck from multiple electric vehicle charging spaces. “Our
#A11 also cares about heavyweights: Had the big blue actually tapped the
charging station, the electricity would probably have been lost in the
surrounding households,” reads the translated tweet.
“ICEing” or the blocking of areas designated for charging have been the
subject of protest from numerous owners of traditional combustion engine
vehicles all around the world. Most recently, members of a group known as
“Cars & Coffee” blocked a series of Tesla Superchargers with their internal
combustion engine (ICE) vehicles in Yorktown, NY in late September. The
group’s leaders issued an apology to Tesla vehicle owners and advised its
members to not block the charging stations reserved for electric vehicles.
Protesting electric vehicles has, unfortunately, been much uglier in the
past. Some ICE vehicle owners choose more long-term forms of vandalism that
end up costing electric car owners and companies money. In the past, there
have been instances of Supercharger cable plugs being destroyed by vandals.
More frequently, people who are against the electric car revolution have
chosen to key Tesla vehicles, without knowing they are being recorded by
Sentry Mode. Fortunately, many of these perpetrators have been caught in the
act and have been forced to be held accountable for their actions.
The continuance of hazing upon electric vehicle owners by ICE drivers has
been going on since the popularity of battery-powered cars has skyrocketed
within the past few years. There are many ways electric car owners are
intimidated, like the actions of a man in Miami, Florida who “rolled coal”
on the owner of a Model 3 Performance. Unfortunately, there does not appear
to be any end in sight to these events.
Electric car popularity is becoming more prevalent every day. Etiquette
regarding the charging of these vehicles is something that should be
maintained throughout the future. Blocking Superchargers is advantageous to
nobody. It will likely end badly for someone, much like it did for the owner
of the blue Ford truck in Berlin.

Those two "before" and "after" photos should be printed out and posted at
every Supercharger next to the "reserved for EVs" sign.

Lets hope this guy has to pay a huge fine to collect his truck.

40 hours of community service cleaning charging stations?

Google any right wing site, or listen to Limbaugh and other right wing radio
programs to understand where this is coming from. In the Wingverse, Tesla
are communist cars and part of the climate-change scam.

I simply can't understand the hate many on the right have towards EVs, which
I've also seen first hand ... This tendency by some to willingly shoot
themselves in the foot over some misguided ideological position is the
height of stupidity.

Simple. Brainwashed by their leaders and the media who are on the payrolls
of the Koch Brothers and Big Oil.
