Tesla owners are increasingly complaining about the rude truck driver intending to block super-load stations, a practice that is so common it has been known as "ICEing" for "combustion engine".
The last incident occurred on Saturday at a Sheetz in Hickory, North Carolina, where a Tesla Model 3 owner was shocked to find pickup trucks that blocked all the electric charging stations.
I've never had a supercharging experience like this. These trucks blocked all chargers, chanted & # 39; F & # 39; Tesla, kicked off by a Sheetz staff member, wrote Reddit user Leicina, and sent a picture of three jacked-up pickup trucks supported on charging locks.
& # 39; Who do you report activity like this? It was very unpleasant, she continued.

In a Sunday incident in Tennessee, a Tesla owner
In a coincidence on Sunday in Tennessee, a Tesla owner discovered a truck backed up in a supercharger station and wondered about getting a fee.
& # 39; These guys parked in a Tesla charging station with their gas or diesel truck, removed the charging cable and placed it in their "comic effect" truck bed, wrote the Reddit user's freckletan.
& # 39; It would be equivalent to a Tesla parking at a gas station at a gas station and passing away.

"We were almost stranded all night," he wrote. "I got up on the sidewalk and made a 12 point turn between the truck and another vehicle with about 1 inch left on each side to connect."
& # 39; We called the city police, but before they arrived, I flagged a couple of El Paso Sheriff deputies who went down to the hotel and started knocking on every door until they found who owned the trucks, "Tesla wrote. owner.
& # 39; We had to hit the road to get home, but I wish I could have seen the fallout. & # 39;
RedfieldStandard noted Lecina's problems at Sheetz in North Carolina and commented that there seemed to be a rise trend.
I think this type of situation is going to escalate into a serious event soon. This ridiculous unreasonable hostility just gets worse, he said.

So far, nine states have passed laws that prohibit internal combustion vehicles from parking by electric charging ports: Arizona, California, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Massachusetts, Oregon, Rhode Island and Washington.
Cities including Washington DC, Seattle, Baltimore, Raleigh, North Carolina and Knoxville, Tennessee have also passed local regulations banning the exercise.
It is not the first phase of hostility between trucks and electric vehicles.
Earlier this year, the practice of "rolling coal" or deliberate modification of diesel-powered trucks to emit large plums of harmful black exhaust has at times been directed to electric vehicles.
However, it may be Tesla who has the last laugh. The company is known to work with its own electric truck, with analysts suggesting a production date as soon as spring 2019.
