Justa thought.....

Post by Sloppysod »

A dual carriageway near me has a 50mph, average speed limit and is labeled as a "Low Emission Zone".... so if I drive a full EV, can I go faster without fear of prosecution, as I will have no tail pipe or noise emissions!! :rofl2: #-o .

If the official green numberplates for ev's get through the various government hoops who knows what purpose their recognition by big brother surveying our highways may be used for.

I am finding that since entering the world of ev ownership, my driving priority isn't getting from A to B as quickly as possible but getting from A to B preserving levels of battery charge by driving as efficiently as possible.

Not quite there yet, out to consultation but many other countries do have an obvious marker for EV's

The Norwegian license plates of all-electric vehicles have a prefix "EL", "EK", "EV" or "EB" to enforce the privileges zero emission vehicles are entitled to.

That's a good maxim for driving an internal combustion engine vehicle as well. It's certainly one I try to follow.
