The no-parking streak that's leaving parked cars empty

There’s one truck that seems to be able to navigate around the parking spaces around this trail junction in Yorkshire — an astonishing persistence that has occurred even when people’s bikes and coats are draped at the spots from their journeys.

But this particular homeless trail user (a trail is an organized piece of public land that is monitored by a network of fences or markers, controlled and enforced by road users) is not the only person to find it increasingly difficult to find parking spaces on the local path. This weather-beaten mule, plus the other trail users, have had enough: “There’s too many people in this area, and the parking is ruined by them,” says Jon, who owns a pub close to the junction. “If we could force them to leave, the ‘establishment’ could sort this all out in about two minutes,” he grins, “or it could be twenty minutes, or it could be an hour.”
