HPD cracking down on electric vehicle parking violators

It’s one of the biggest complaints the state received from people who drive electric vehicles: others parking in their charging stations when they’re not supposed to.

But police are now cracking down on violators.

State Sen. Mike Gabbard, (D) Kapolei, Makakilo, parks his Nissan Leaf in this electric vehicle stall in Kapolei. But he remembers an incident months earlier when he ran into a small problem.

“I was kind of running low on juice and I live close by, but I needed to get a charge but spaces were being used but they weren’t EV’s,” Sen. Gabbard said.

Vehicles that aren’t electric, parked in stalls that are clearly reserved for others.

“I kind of waited and came back and the guy was not very nice,” Sen. Gabbard said.

But now, there is a parking crackdown on violators of EV slots. Anyone who parks there who’s not supposed to, could receive a citation between $50 and $100. It’s a new law that went into effect two weeks ago.

“I’m an EV driver so I’m for it, I think it’s great,” Pearlridge General Manager Fred Paine said.
