Some green-minded businesses set aside parking spaces marked “Clean Air Vehicles” or “Hybrid,” but as in the example above, at a Rancho Cucamonga grocery, some regular vehicles play a dirty trick by parking there anyway.
I shot the photo above, days after receiving an email on the topic from Paul McClure of San Dimas. McClure says he saw such spaces recently for the first time at the new Olive Garden in his burg. He asked a hostess if his Prius qualified under the restaurant’s rules for a “Clean Air Vehicle” space.
She replied: “Oh, sure. Every vehicle qualifies. We’re not going to tow anybody.”
Well, they say the customer is always right.
