Electrical Madness

Problem

Electric cars are becoming very popular. With the increase in gas prices car consumers may feel as if they do not have a choice in what to do next regarding transportation.  One may purchase a car for the flexibility in going where you want to whenever you want. This has come with a price as the gas companies are well aware of this. Prices go up because of the demand for independence and freedom. Who wants to wait for a bus or train or even pay the cost for a taxi? These are all modes of transportation we must wait on including air. Sure, you can do things like talk and text because you are not the driver. But still, you arrive at your destination when he or she does and not when you decide. What does this have to do with electric cars? Good question. My answer to that is another question: do we get to decide how we leave this world? Some people do and others do not.  Can we prevent unnecessary accidents from happening so that we can stay longer?  Let this not be a question we have to ask mother for!  Charging stations have been placed all over to accomodate electric vehicles.  But has technology factored in bad weather due to snow, rain and water damage that occurs as a result?  Do we want to risk our lives saving that extra $100 dollars a month or more because we were not properly prepared with the appropriate safety devices to prevent extreme shock and electrocution hazzards?

Solution

People need to be protected against electrical dangers not only at car charging stations but even in their own homes.  It is a bit pricey to have to convert to a 240 volt electrical system in your garage or outside your driveway in order to charge your car which would include a ground fault interrupt circuit. So that in the event of a leak in the electricity circuit, power would be removed from the circiut to prevent accidental discharge of electricity.  You would still need one of these even if you had a portable battery system. Anti-static and anti-electrocution mats with a ground wire should be a requirement for those who own electric cars and also be required for use to surround the charging stations also. As a matter of fact electric cars should be quipped with anti-static and anit-electrocution mats with ground wire.  Once the mats are in place they protect the occupants of the car and persons using the charging stations from any accidental electricity or shock they may encounter. This could be due to faulty or worn wiring within the car or a problem resulting from the charging station.  The mats are a great safety feature and can be installed like regular car mats. Transportation woes have given most of us bad hair days, some more than others.  But to not enforce anti static-and anti-electrocution mats with ground wire, can certainly create a dye we can live without.
