Email the Technical Response Service or call 800-254-6735.

An individual may not park a motor vehicle within any on- or off-street parking space specifically designated by a local authority for parking and charging EVs unless the vehicle is a EV fueled by electricity. Eligible EVs must be in the process of charging to park in the space. A person found responsible for a violation is subject to traffic violation penalties.

EV parking spaces count as at least one space toward minimum parking requirements.
