There are people on EV pages that say sure, it’s public equipment, take the cord. I’m against messing with people’s property without a word with them. That’s super asshole Karen shit IMO. Most of what you see blocking chargers seems to be gas cars parked there for no good reason. It also seems to be slow chargers that get filled up and not your typical fast chargers that you’ll use like a gas stop. I’ve never had the issue myself. Re: trip planning - with just a bit of preplanning and getting to know your car, chargers, and apps those sorts of issues are non-existent. It’s happened to me by my own haste and lack of research. Of course there are situations that you can’t plan for, but I’d estimate those to be pretty low risk. There are trade-offs, but to me the benefits gained greatly outweigh the potential drawbacks. I mean yeah, you can’t just take an exit and expect fast charging to be there like you would gas. If Tesla really opens to all EVs at reasonable speeds and cost then there will be like zero excuse for 99% of the population.
