According to a report by Insider in April, there are only roughly three electric vehicle charging outlets for every 10,000 individuals in the United States.
Four-day electric vehicle procession that was traveling from Charlotte to Memphis ran into trouble in Grovestown, Georgia. When the group discovered there wouldn't be enough electric vehicle chargers to go around because one was broken and the others were in use, they were planned a rapid charge, according to NPR.
The relocation didn't sit well with a family who were also waiting for a charging space because it was a hot day. Since blocking an EV charging station with a gas-powered automobile is not against the law in Georgia, the family, who was traveling with a baby in their car, phoned the police. However, the police were powerless to intervene.
The episode brought attention to the urgent need for improved EV infrastructure as Granholm and her staff attempted to make things right, ultimately giving the family a slot and sending some of their own vehicles to slower charging stations.
As a bystander driving an electric BMW told NPR, "It's just routine," They will eventually come to their senses.
