And if the person who unplugs my car happens to be the same one who is fulfilling his quota of citations, then I guess my little Jazz video camera had better be recording every instant of my parking duration.
I've just asked for GM's position. Our interpretation was that the definitions provided in the bill summary clarified the type of vehicles required (and contains the language problematic to current Volt drivers). After seeing my post, GM is insisting that I have misinterpreted, and that the summary has no relevance whatsoever, and that the only requirement is "connected for electric charging purposes"- in which case we agree that it's actually worse, because it would indeed open up to any gas car with a socket, or engine block heater (not that we have those in CA, but still), etc. From my perspective, someone could put a battery tender on the 12v in his Suburban and technically be "electrically charging his vehicle".
Will report back, and will clarify one way or the other on the post when I can get a fairly reliable determination.
On the quota issue, I have that concern too- but I'm already being accused of being a conspiracy theorist, and the post was long enough already.
