Washington State to fine gas car drivers who block electric car charging station access

Washington State is looking to ease access to electric car charging stations by cracking down on the ICE’ing phenomenon. An ICE’d charging station is one that’s blocked by a car, typically gasoline powered, blocking access to the station and preventing an electric car driver from using it. There’s nothing more frustrating or dangerous to an electric car driver than to arrive at a much-needed charging station blocked only to be unable to use it because the station is blocked.

A bill, SB5849, sponsored by Senators Tom, Frockt, Keiser, Hatfield, and Kline in the Washington State legislature would enact a penalty for cars parked in front of an electric car charging station, but not plugged in. The measure unanimously passed the State Senate on Wednesday and is headed to the House for consideration.
