BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Boulder wants to make it illegal to park conventional vehicles at an electric car charging station.

Currently it is not against the law to use those parking places and people are ignoring signs telling drivers those spaces are reserved.

The Boulder Daily Camera reports the Boulder City Council is considering an ordinance that would make it a violation with a $20 fine to ignore those signs.

It also would require that electric vehicles parked at the spots actually be charging.
