A4 parking dilema

New reports show parking restrictions for buses during World Youth Day. All vehicles will have to park 15-20 away from the site near the A4 highway. However, the ministries have turned down the idea. Even if all the buses and cars would park on the highway, Polish law requires 19m between buses. This would mean only 1.5 thousand buses would fit. An estimated 6 thousand buses are expected to arrive in Krakow for the event. [Wyborcza]
