Have you been 'ICE'd'? Drivers promote electric car parking etiquette(Read article summary)
Blink, an electric car charging network, has developed printable notices that electric car drivers can use to inform gas drivers when their cars occupy spots reserved for electric cars, Voelcker writes.
What to do about it is the subject of much discussion among electric-car owners.
Now charging network Blink is offering at least a partial solution.
The company has put up on its website three differentÂ printable noticesÂ that can be placed under the wiper of the offending gasoline cars, pointing out to their drivers the error of their ways.

They range in tone from relatively polite to somewhat aggressive, with three different headlines:
- You have ICEd* me!
- Did you know youâ€™re parked in an electricvehicleÂ only parking spot?
- You obviously know nothing about electric vehicles.
We rather like the title of the official-looking document: "Notice of Inconsideration."
If you're an electric car driver, what tactics do you use when a charging spot is taken up by a gasoline car without a plug?
