Low Emission and Fuel Efficient Vehicles Only

carI spotted this sign at Mississauga's Square One mall. It's a parking spot reserved for "Low Emission and Fuel Efficient Vehicles Only".

I just wonder how they enforce it. Do they have a list of car makes and models that fit the bill? Does my '99 Mazda Protégé qualify?

Wouldn't it be greener to allow the high emission and fuel non-efficient cars the better spaces?

The Smart Car can drive around the parking lot and cause less of a foot print than the Hummer.

And as you said Mike, how can they honestly enforce this? I imagine that they can't (just like the expectant mother's parking spaces).

This is getting ridiculous.

The ultimate in politically correct bullshit.

We have the same parking spots down here at the Venetian, and the brand new CityCenter. I once asked a security guard about it, and I was told they can't actually enforce it, it's more like a suggestion.

We have those in my apartment complex's parking garage.

It's one of the things that scores you points on the LEED criteria for how green a building is.

People park their SUVs and their V8 sportscars there. It's stupid.

Ikea installed those spots a few years back. They're painted green. Surprisingly, there weren't any hummers parked in it out of spite. Then again, I don't know how many spiteful people shop at Ikea...
