Over time we’ve heard plenty of stories of owners of large diesel trucks or high performance petrol cars blocking Tesla charging stations. The media are now calling this ICE-ing, and while the media has shone a light on these pathetic attempts at annoying EV owners, it’s still happening.
In some countries, the police can do very little to stop this, so in an attempt to make a point, a group of EV owners, the majority Teslas from what can be made out from the video, blocked a fuel station somewhere in Croatia, according to the numberplates.
This block lasted no longer than 6 minutes, and was used to “point out the fact that electric vehicles are here, and their positive impact on society,” according to Igor Kolovrat on Facebook.
Many have rallied around this movement and are backing the EV drivers who pulled this off, but adding fuel to a feud has never been the way to settle a dispute. However, this has brought attention to the issues that EV drivers face and hopefully will push laws to be changed so police forces can do something about potential ICE-ing. See below an ICEr getting his truck removed for blocking an Tesla Supercharger station.
Unser #A11 kümmert sich auch um Schwergewichte:
Hätte der große Blaue tatsächlich die Ladesäule angezapft, wäre vermutlich in den umliegenden Haushalten der Strom ausgefallen.
