HOAs And Electric Cars. Whew!

You just never know what to expect when you start writing about the outrages of HOA Amerika. But I suppose I could have predicted this one.

It happened in Venice, Florida. The owners of a brand new Chevy Volt discovered one of their neighbors was cutting the cord of their plug-in vehicle.

Now I’m no fan of the Volt. I actually think it’s a little stupid-looking and wouldn’t hold the boxes from any of my recent trips to Costco. But not in a million years would I think of intentionally damaging someone else’s plug-in car. Let them live in peace. It saves more carbon-based gasoline for me.

But intentionally wrecking someone else’s car?

Beyond idiotic. And I hope some Florida cop can figure out a way of sending this creep to jail.
