    Frustration among electric vehicle drivers - over cheeky parking by owners of gas guzzlers

    Frustration among electric vehicle drivers - over cheeky parking by owners of gas guzzlers


    There's been a rise in people parking petrol cars in EV charging stations - blocking owners from charging up.

    Ute drivers seem to be the biggest culprits - with many posting pix on social media of them in EV spots.

    EV enthusiast Kathryn Trounson says it's irritating.

    Trounson says it's like someone in an electric car parking at a gas station to stop someone filing up with petrol.
