I totally respect your right to your opinions. And as a business owner, you totally have the right to not waste a single parking space on a L2 charge. And it’s totally your free speech right to insult those business owners who made the choice to install L2 chargers in their parking lot, like calling the decision “dumb”, etc. But, once that decision has been made, your opinion is irrelevant. It’s still a functional parking space. If you are not charging a plug-in car while occupying the space, you should not be in it, regardless of the number of the available parking spaces in the lot. I’m not saying this to be unsympathetic to the situation you were in recently. I’m saying it because the choice to designate the parking spaces to be EV-only charging spaces has been made, and you need to respect that decision. The alternative is simply anarchy, and I’m going to guess that you do not subscribe to that political philosophy.DCFC spots should never be occupied by a vehicle not charging, but those lame L2 spots are free game for any vehicle when the lot is full.
As an aside, the only practical reason why handicapped spots can't be utilized when the lot is full is because there's no way to tell if the lot was full at the time the non-permitted person parked in the spot.
I attended a conference that had limited parking and every spot was full, including an EV L2 spot by an ICE. What, are people supposed to just go home and not attend the conference in the off chance that an EV has traveled to this conference with no way to make it out of there without lowly L2 charging?
It's up to local law regulate as they see fit, I'm just saying what my rules would be if I were responsible for maximizing utility of resources (parking spots vs slow charging opportunity). As a business owner, I'd never install L2 because I don't want to waste my money, or my time settling issues related to it that has nothing to do with my business.
