Matter of fact, I'm sitting here at breakfast drinking my coffee in a coffee shop that's inside a truck maintenance/repair center across the street from a TA truck stop. I'll be here for hours while I pay my bills and check out the forum.Love's and the other big chains like TA are relatively clean and safe on the highways around me.
When my kids were young and it was boys night out, the TA truck stop is where we would go. They have a restaurant along with a Burger King, Pizza Hut express, and a Taco Bell. Then they have an arcade room that we would spend hours playing.
I can see L2 having a place for the locals. I can imagine someone that doesn't have a house and access to charging, could do their charging at a place like this. I think we need local access to L2 when electric cars go mainstream. Many people can't charge at "home". The people that need electric cars the most are the ones that don't have access to charging at home. Although, the technology might leapfrog the need where car sharing becomes a thing and most people won't own a car because its cheaper not to.
