commented on The Morning News: Another Hate Crime on the Hill
Where I work in *Bellevue* there's a uniformed cop (off-duty?) at the parking garage exit to block cars only when pedestrians cross the exit on the sidewalk and to wave cars coming out of the garage when the coast is clear. He never blocks traffic in the road to let cars out of the garage. Not sure why cops in Seattle shouldn't be doing the same.

Supposedly the amount of maintenance that goes into an electric car is significantly less than one powered by an internal combustion engine. Tesla has claimed in the past that they don't want to use dealers because of the poor customer service experience but also because the maintenance situation gives dealers a disincentive to push electric cars since they make a lot of money off of service after a car is sold.
