Electric cars, accounting for tax and parking benefits, have become better than regular cars. But in a big city there are difficulties — you wouldn’t try to use a cable stretching from the 17th floor to charge. This issue is solved by special connectors attached to street lampposts.
The electricity is paid for through a municipal mobile app. Some especially entreprising citizens tried to steal electricity by stealthily using the connector, but a new control function took care of that, and now a charging device periodically checks the cryptographic IDs of automobile computers.
