A recently unearthed video from 2021 shows an entire Los Angeles street’s worth of EV charging stations were made unusable due to the garbage strewn around them by the homeless.
This is especially alarming considering the new law California just passed last week.
As we previously reported, Citizens of California are allowed to continue driving and buying gas-powered vehicles after 2035, but no new models will be sold in the state thereafter.
According to FOX News, the decision comes two years after the state’s Governor, Gavin Newsom, first directed regulators to consider the policy. If the plan is successfully executed, California would cut emissions from vehicles in half by the year 2040.
As noted by the Western Journal, California has prided itself on creating charging stations in many of the state’s largest cities. According to PlugShare, Los Angeles has really gone all out and now has a whopping 3,984 charging stations, of which more than 500 are free to use.
