Unintended consequences?

No inductive charging (see: "attached").
Who enforces it? The private property owner?
A non-electric truck towing electric snowmobiles cannot park to charge them?

That's a nice collection of strawmen you threw up there. ;)
  1. Worst case: this particular law won't apply to inductive charging stations, and would need to be amended. Best case: the "attached" part is interpreted to be "electromagnetically coupled", and enforcement just means that only EVs will be allowed to park there. :)
  2. It's a law about parking, so I would imagine enforcement will be handled in the same manner as enforcement of handicap parking spaces. I don't know who handles that in Ontario.
  3. It sounds like the trailer with these imaginary electric snowmobiles could be parked there to charge them. But if the truck itself needs to block some other EV charging space in order to do so, that probably warrants a ticket.

This is Highway traffic Act, I believe a ticket is first issued by the municipal By-Law parking enforcement officer, then that is replaced with a HTA violation. But I suspect if a cop sees a violation they can/would just issue the ticket as well.

This is how accessible parking violations are handled.

I am an early reservation holder for Taiga Motors - a Canadian "ES" manufacturer. I'm hoping to get mine this year. Yes, Taiga is on Elon time too.
So it's a possibility soon
