Furious EV owners resort to getting up in the middle of the night to charge their cars as fights break out over charging points because there aren’t ENOUGH of them – with marshals brought in to police service stations. Buy a petrol car then and stop bowing to a hoax

Electric vehicle owners furiously arguing with each other over charging points because there aren’t enough of them available are having to get up in the dead of night to power up their motors.

Such is the ‘charge rage’ that marshals are being brought in to police frustrated drivers at motorway service stations.

The boss of Britain’s largest motorway service provider, Moto chief executive Ken McMeikan, said long waits for plug-in points made drivers ‘very angry and stressed’.

Others are so fed up they have decided to ditch the eco-cars and go back to diesel as they are ‘easier’ to run with the infrastructure for plug-in vehicles not expected to be ready for more than a decade.

Many electric car drivers were adamant that the north of the country is far worse off in terms of infrastructure.

One motorist at a service station told MailOnline: ‘Sometimes I get up at four or five am just to charge the car, because I know it would be busy in the day.’

The 72-year-old is so fed up he is now taking his second electric vehicle – an MG – back, adding: ‘I am giving it back next week because of the stress. I will go back to my diesel car because it’s easier.’

But some residents local to the area surrounding Thurrock services off the M25 say they’re ditching their electric vehicle as they’re fed up of having to queue to charge their car.

Drivers living near the services are seemingly spoilt for choice, as it now boasts three rows of charging points, amounting to around 30 in total.

Locals say it is the only place in the area to have so many, whereas other points in the car parks of nearby supermarkets, pubs and gyms are coveted and occasionally fought over.

Ray Lee, an Uber driver of five years who lives in nearby Grays, Essex says he has witnessed arguments over charging points.

The 72-year-old is so fed up he is handing his second electric vehicle – an MG – back in next week after growing frustrated by the lack of infrastructure, says he has woken up in the dead of night to charge his car, instead of risking long queues before beginning work.

The father-of-four and grandfather-of-five explained: ‘There aren’t enough charging points.

‘There’s one in Grays and two near the Sainsbury’s, so when people say there are taking too long they start fighting. I’ve not seen it get violent but they argue with each other.
