And the cable would be too short for some cars and mk 1 Nissan Leaf owners wouldn't be able to use them!Wonder if this might lead to fixed short length type 2 cables rather than socketed posts? You'd have to park close and the cable would be waist height rather than all over the floor. Children will probably decapitate themselves instead
But if it's dark, and the black cable is in the shadow of a car, low down below the normal line of sight, you can't really blame someone for not seeing it. You can't do that much to prevent tripping over some transient rubbish or something that shouldn't be there in the dark, but you can do something about a cable that is there all the time.But then again people really should just look where they are going
They aren't really but a slightly wider bay is better. The problem in my picture above is that the normal bays aren't very wide anyway, so plugging a side ported EV in if the bays are full would be iffy. They've taken the easy option of grabbing 6 spaces and just painting out a bay in front of each of the posts, rather than reworking the whole section of the car park (which had been relined only a few months before). It's a kludge.I can't be the only one who thinks extra wide bays or hatched markings around bay aren't really necessary?
