That is possibly one of the least thought through comments I have seen recently in this thread. Please clarify what you mean by a stopping point? Normally on a long journey we'll stop at a motorway service station, or come off at a major junction to a re-fuelling station, obviously putting a whacking great big fuel station up with all of the planning issues and and safety precautions surrounding them is a lot easier than putting in a few charging points (that was sarcasm btw.) I highly doubt that in 5 years time you will find any major service station, or supermarket or hotel with out a few fast chargers, the competition in the market place to service a huge growth in vehicles will be far too lucrative to ignore. You sound like my Dad did when mobile phones were becoming popular, "Ah, great idea but until I can get a signal in the local then they are a waste of time, and that will never happen"
