we can’t park anyway
Because yes, we know; On many occasions, it can be tempting for drivers of combustion cars to park or stop in them when they are empty, whether it is to run a quick errand or some important purchases. This, however, is not only prohibited, but also entails a significant sanction by the DGT.
But, instead, what we see is that we can also devise it for what has to do with the electric car itself, which has its own parking spaces, but of which, nevertheless, It doesn’t have to be done anyhow.
We talk, above all, about the types of parking lots, which They usually have a time limit. about 1 hour or up to three hours. Therefore, we can also be fined for parking longer than necessary, even if you are charging your car. Let’s remember that the purpose of these spaces is to be able to load, not to park.
Electric car parks have their limit time
This conduct is punishable, but for it to be so, a section of the Law on Traffic, Motor Vehicle Circulation and Road Safety must be infringed. The space reserved for electric car charging must be marked with the sign S17which identifies that it is an established area for parking, and with a lower sign that places the restriction on it, which must be used for recharging.
Therefore, if you are the driver of an electric vehicle, and you park in an area reserved for charging them, but you don’t connect the powerThey can also penalize you.
Considered a serious offense, the truth is that any vehicle, both combustion and electrified, parked at an electric car charging point that is not connected to the network, may be penalized with a fine of up to 200 euros.

However, it is important to remember that each town hall sets its requirements and measures when parking, for example, in the blue zone. Thus, in large cities like Madrid, they penalize you if you do not wear the tag to access the city center. And they have the advantage that these vehicles can circulate on the Bus-HOV lane, as well as central Madrid.
At the same time, and this is the same for each of the cities in which these parking benefits are allowed, the municipal service makes use of its own DGT Vehicle Registry. Given this, the registration of the vehicle 0 emissions accounts for its condition.
