California's EV Charging Stations

Rusting EV station signOK, now that I told you yesterday's story, I can share today's picture.

Here is a one of the famous Electric Vehicle Charging Station signs that were posted all over California as part of the pending Electric Car boom.

It is eerie and strangely odd why the California Government keeps the signs posted. The last electric car was crushed in 1996.

Optimism? Nostalgia? Naaaah, probably just that no politician wants to have anything to do with Electric Vehicles or lowering emissions. Who would be stupid enough to open that Pandora's box? Just let the signs rust off the posts!

Of note, there is a new resurgence of Electric Vehicles on the horizon. Let's see if we can keep them out of the crusher this time.
