After over a year John Muir Concord finally added three electric vehicle only signs (spaces) for their two double level 2 chargers. Thank you for the signage.
Although, someone still doesn’t get it.
Parking a non EV in a dedicated EV stall is a violation of California Vehicle Code 22511 and may be fined $100 and/or towed at owners expense.
On a separate note, there’s four level 2 chargers total, which means the adjacent handicap stall is a dual propose stall, a Handicap EV stall. Because it’s a handicap stall, only handicap drivers may charge an EV there, but because there’s no ‘EV only’ sign, non EV handicap drivers may still park there.
