Reserved Parking for Tree Huggers

Apparently Ikea is going to start setting aside parking spaces reserved for hybrid or fuel efficient cars. How they determine who qualifies is yet to be disclosed. Perhaps the same idiot who determined which cars or "trucks" qualified for the government rebates will make a list for them.

It pisses me off when people misuse handicap parking spaces, and I'm more than happy to give up spots reserved for knocked up chicks, but I'll be damned if I think I should park farther way so tree huggers can be closer to the doors!!!

Will they be able to give out tickets? Will they have cars towed? Or will tree huggers just key your car if you're parked in one of these spaces?

This is something I just can't respect or get behind.

If they want to be environmentally conscious, they should reserve spaces for gas guzzlers so they don't have to drive up and down the aisles looking for a spot. If the hybrids make a couple extra laps trying to find one, it's of far less impact to the environment.

  1. Yea, it will be hard to find a fair way to judge which cars deserve the up close parking… It would be a whole lot easier to just say "Hey, if you are a douchebag that drives a H2, you have to park on the far end of the lot.

    People need to be encouraged to drive cars that are more fuel efficient (or flex-fuel type cars). Our government isn't encouraging this (letting oil company's price E85 the same as the other shit), so someone has to.
