Motorists hit with parking fine as they charge vehicles | News

Drivers who want to charge their electric cars are complaining of having their wallets overcharged instead.

Some of Britain’s 400,000 electric vehicle (EV) owners are facing fines from private parking operators because rules have not been updated since the charging points were installed.

They report receiving penalties of up to £120 after private parking companies claim they have overstayed the maximum period at service stations and in private car parks.

Drivers say that the parking time allowed is insufficient for a full charge. In some cases, drivers have been fined for using publicly advertised charge points without separately informing the hotel or shop where it is located.
