Re: UK Charging points
The Morrisons at Wolstanton near Stoke on Trent had a great idea - you filled up with fuel and then drove to the exit of the filling station where there was a booth and you paid for the fuel without leaving the car.
But I think the bean counters didn't like this so they re-developed the entire place and then built a "normal" mini-shop, which means to have to wait until previous customers have walked to the shop, taken a look around, buy a few items and then pay for their fuel and walk back.
There's an Esso petrol station on the A14 at Rothwell, where you can fill up, then just drive forwards into a parking bay in front of the shop, thereby making space for someone else. If all petrol stations were like this, it would help speed things up. (IMHO).
