Goodbye roadside charging stations

Once we had rows of ugly stalks along the roadside that took your coins for parking - or more often failed to take your coins for parking. Unloved, they have now largely gone and no one mourns their passing. Unfortunately, in place of them we have an increase in ugly electric car charging stations; fewer but larger. All too often, they do not work either because they are broken or have the wrong payment methods or interfaces. The good news is that they will soon be gone too. As Baroness Kramer said when a UK Minister of Technology a few years ago, "We badly need roadside charging stations to roll out EVs but in ten years EV range will be so great that we shall not need them."
