Perth has changed the policy on parking for EV's. I am not sure what the current state is but as far as I am aware you will need to pay for parking these days.

Thanks for updating. What really sucks is you never what is going on in almost any Council area. There is just no communication with drivers.

The communication channels in elec driving are still at a very basic level, it is essentially driver to driver based communication. We all share what info we pick up here and there.

My parking ticket appeal for using a Perth Council EV charger without paying for parking was rejected with no reference to the chargers or signage, which was frustrating.

I think on top of governments needing to step in for standards in terms of access to charger (e.g. PAYG), they should set out national standards for EV signage covering parking fees too. See also https://twitter.com/glynhudson/status/1 ... 3946274816 for a hotel charger, although that had a happy ending, or https://twitter.com/VassiliPapa/status/ ... 2960838666 - my point is the ambiguity and risk of a fine is a real deterrent.

(Should we start a new thread as this has drifted away from bus lanes?)
