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 different printable notices 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 you’re parked in an electricvehicle 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?
