Either the designers of the signs above really liked the word “hybrid”, or these reserved hybrid vehicle parking spaces were being squatted on by the offspring of Immortals, Vampires and Lycans (who, all things considered, can park wherever they want). If that weren’t enough, doubling down on the “hybrid cars” messaging also deters mules, ligers, killer bees and minotaurs from parking there – and we’re OK with that.

You Gotta Be Leaf
“Electric hybrid car parking only” covers more than a few bases but that’s fine; these wordless graphics cover more than a few EV charger-less hybrid vehicle parking spaces in the above lot. Have we progressed to the point where a simple symbol is enough to imply who should use these spaces? Have we finally reached Peak Leaf? Would a wood-burning steam engined vehicle like an Old West locomotive qualify? Well OAKey-dokey then! (image via Mike Mozart)
We’ll leave the “zero emissions” jokes to others but if you drive a hybrid vehicle, you just might not be getting enough respect. On the one hand, your clean (well, cleanER) ride still carries one of those infernal er, internal combustion engines. On the other hand, that minuscule gas-sipper under the hood tends to trigger traditionalist coal-rollers right in the truck nutz. What to do? We suggest you grab some reading material and set a spell ’til your environ-mental stress subsides. (image via born1945)
