According to the ADAC, there are sometimes major differences in parking signs at e-charging stations from municipality to municipality.

The ADAC criticizes inconsistent and confusing rules when 

parking at public charging stations

in Germany.

The traffic club called for this "mess of signs" to be replaced by nationwide uniform rules for charging and parking.

The current

signage

is partly “unclear and misleading”.

Parking at the charging station: ADAC criticizes “sign confusion”

The ADAC had queried

the

rules for parking at public charging stations * in

the 16 German state capitals and city states

and found some major differences. Electric vehicles of all kinds were only allowed to park at the pillars in five cities. In the rest you needed an

E-mark

for it . In two cities, combustion engines were even allowed to park at some charging stations – at least at night.

When it comes to the 

question of whether you can park at the charging stations without charging,

five cities said yes and the others no.

And there were sometimes different rules for fast charging stations.

According to the ADAC, even the signs did not always provide clear information: For example, the additional sign “During the charging process” does not specify what applies when the battery is full but the car is still parked.

Which vehicles are allowed to park at charging stations

According to ADAC.de

,

parking spaces

at e-charging stations

are correctly marked

“with a square sign with a white P on a blue background, combined with one or more additional signs”.

According to the experts, these

additional signs

define which vehicles are allowed to park at the charging station, at what time and for how long.

With a few exceptions, the parking spaces at e-charging stations in the cities surveyed are correct with the 

blue and white parking lot sign

 plus additional signs, the ADAC also reported on its website on January 27th.

According to the ADAC, the cities also agree on one point: parking at the charging station does not incur any separate fees.

Interested parties can find out more about the individual regulations in the cities surveyed by the ADAC here.
