Are 2,000 new parking spots for electric cars coming to NYC?
In his final State of the City address, Mayor Bloomberg introduced new plans for his final term, which include changing building codes to add parking spaces for electric cars. According to CBS News, the Mayor wants to require 20% of the 10,000 new parking spots expected to be created this year to be equipped with electric car charging stations. Another electric car initiative is to create a curbside station which would recharge batteries in a speedy thirty minutes instead of the typical eight hours.
What do you think of the Mayor's electric car plans? Do you think the City Council will approve his proposals?
