Paul rages – don't park a flammable electric car near a hospital

A security guard threw Paul Freemann-Powell away because he arrived in an electric car at a hospital that does not allow electric cars to park right there.

Alder Hey Hospital in the English city of Liverpool does not allow electric cars to park in the parking basement. The reason? The fire hazard of the cars.

However, Paul Freeman-Powell cannot understand that message. And not at all that he was asked to leave the place when he arrived in just an electric car.

The BBC writes that.

Then on his "X" profile, the electric car owners are furious that he was thrown away by a security guard and told to find another place to park.

In his anger at the rejection, the electric car owner has now written a letter to the hospital's management, in which he demands that electric cars be allowed to park in the hospital's parking lots.

In the letter, Freeman-Powell claims, among other things, that 'electric cars have a 20 percent lower risk of bursting into flames than, for example, diesel and petrol cars'.

In a comment to the BBC, the hospital writes that the ban on parking electric cars is temporary. And that it is because some security measures must be 'upgraded first'.

What Paul Freeman-Powell does not mention, but which the hospital instead draws attention to, is that a little further away in another of the area's parking lots space has been made for electric cars. There are even 14 charging stations set up.

According to a Swedish investigation, however, there is no reason to fear fires in electric cars. At least not that they are more frequent than fires in fossil cars.

In 2022, an investigation concluded that there are 3.8 fires per year. 100,000 electric and hybrid cars. While there are 68 fires per 100,000 diesel and petrol cars, when you count the alleged fires. Read more about it here .
