Only Hybrid Fans
Kudos to the GreenSTAR Sustainable Development folks for setting aside at least one parking space for hybrid vehicles… and ONLY hybrid vehicles. No EVs, no FCVs (hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, like the Toyota Mirai), no way no how! You’ll notice the space is empty: kudos to the strict and vigilant security team at Tempe Marketplace for making the world safe for hybrid vehicles, one parking space at a time.

Old and busted: make a little birdhouse in your soul. New green-ness: make a little birdhouse on our sign! That’s how they roll at The Wild Center, formerly the Natural History Museum of the Adirondacks in Tupper Lake, New York). This is one case where intrusive over-regulation isn’t for the birds, it’s for YOU. (image via Tina Lawson)
Register and Park
“Register”, really? Isn’t that something certain kinds of offenders are required to do? Whatever, lump hybrid vehicle owners in with them, it’s just one more passive-aggressive humiliation they have to bear. We never said it was easy being green, it’s just more difficult when you park at the University of Richmond. Also, you just know there’s a registration fee. (image via Anna Creech)
One wonders how one of those disrespected hybrid vehicle owners might feel as they pull up to their reserved parking spot at IKEA, only to find out a very large, very NON-hybrid Hummer got their first. Would they act out by Allen-keying the uncaring interloper? Not to defend the owner of the hulking mega SUV with its troll face grin grill but there IS a battery in there, somewhere. Just sayin’.
