This sign puzzles me.
I assume it is intended as pro-hybrid, pro-energy conservation signal.
But the parking space designated is not particularly convenient to the store, so if it is pro-hybrid effort, it is tepid support at best. Usually there are more convenient parking spaces available, and I’ve never seen a car parked in the spot, hybrid or not.
I also assume this is a private effort on the part of the shopping center owner, and if it makes the owner feel good then who am I to object?
But just in case the idea might spread, I feel compelled to point out that these technology-based resource allocation devices are inefficient ways to pursue policy goals.
