This should be a monetized podcast by now lol
Discussed this before.And without power, how do gas pumps work?
Cerial, I'm not saying that people shouldn't have the right to choose,............I agree that everyone should choose what they want. I just think they need to realize the realities of making that choice .Having the freedom to choose for yourself is something I will always support. I may not agree with your choice personally. But I respect that that choice is yours not mine.
And yet...Discussed this before.
1 gas station with 1 backup generator can service 100s of ICEs a day during a power outage. I think a lot of gas stations already have emergency power generators
yet you posted again. you are obviously very emotional about ice vs ev. it's a choice plain and simple. some people will choose ice, some people will choose ev. nobody is wrong. i look forward to doing an ev hotrod. my current ev is a 03 club car, it's a great around the neighborhood vehicle, i'd never try to drive it to california, that would be silly, though if i chose to that would be my choice 🤷♀️Decided there really is nothing further that needs saying from my point of view,
if you run over something and damage your car, full coverage insurance will pay for it, minus the deductible, just like any car
This is why when I get a house my mailbox will likely be supported by a substantial steel post filled with concrete.Insurance plans all differ in what they cover and rates vary depending on what they have to cover. Add the liability of a $5000 battery pack to a vehicle and insurance costs for that vehicle will likely be higher. As cars age, usually people carry minimal coverage on their own vehicle and most coverage on liability. Then there is always the "deductable" if you kept the insurance coverage. In any case the owner of an electric vehicle should expect his insurance costs to be higher than a vehicle without a $5000 battery, In any case you are expecting the general public to protect themselves, and that won't happen. Look how many cars break down and are towed and never reclaimed by the owners.
Had some incidents in front of my house two months ago. Where I live there is a hill that crests just after my driveway. Police had a guy stopped down the hill. No drivers license so I assume no insurance. Towed his car. While this was going on 2 motorcycles came over the hill, saw the police and whipped into my driveway to evade passing the police down the road. Its 10:30 at night. My drive alarm goes off and I go outside to see who is in my drive. Concurrently my neighbor saw/heard them and called the police. The drunken bikers explained that one of them had lost his license and no insurance. Shortly they left and went the other way. While this was going on, the police dispatcher had contacted the patrol officer down the road and he turned around and came to investigate. He stopped his car in the road in front of my house and knocked on my door. While I was talking to him, another car came speeding over the hill (35mph speed limit). The driver saw the police car in the road and whipped to the right to avoid hitting it. She took my 1/4" steel mailbox out by the roots and went thru my front yard and back out into the road before stopping. The pregnant girl was driving her boyfriends car that had insurance.........but she had no license. They never paid for the mailbox and I told the police to just drop it.
A friend/neighbor down the street lives where the road runs uphill and curves. An unlicensed and drunk illegal alien came (probably around 100 mph) down the road late at night. He went across my neighbors yard (uphill) and was launched thru the air. He knocked a wooden fence down and still had enough momentum to fly across the front on another neighbors porch and take out the 3 supporting columns .......without ever touching the porch. Landed ,took out some shrubs went back down the hill and across the road into another yard and hit a van. No insurance either.
In any case, a car that doesn't have a $5000 battery can't have that battery fail and doesn't need insurance that covers it.
Best to not do this.This is why when I get a house my mailbox will likely be supported by a substantial steel post filled with concrete.
I haven't ................but never say never. You never know when someone will make a breakthru on solar power that can keep a vehicle charged.If you don't want a EV then don't buy one.
