USA: Parking law for electric cars not enforceable until 2013

Question: I am an electric vehicle owner and was recently at Costco Waipio, where I noticed seven “Electric Vehicle Parking Only” stalls spread throughout the parking lot. Most were occupied by gasoline-powered vehicles, including a Toyota Prius, which is not an “EV.” What is the penalty for non-EVs parking in these stalls? Will police be giving citations, just like when someone parks in a handicap stall without the proper placard? (Two questions combined)

Answer: Costco Waipio is one of the first businesses to comply with the state law requiring parking lots that are open to the general public and have at least 100 stalls to designate 1 percent of the stalls “exclusively for electric vehicles” by Dec. 31, 2011. Login for more…
