    Can you plow some loose soil so the cars get stuck? Then you can charge them a nominal fee (100 Euro? in advance) to pull them out. Only works if you know how to get around it.

      There are a lot of trespassers coming across the southern border of the US.

        There are no stupid questions. But there are lots of stupid answers. This is the internet.

          What, exactly, is political about a statement of fact?

            You're serious? If so, I must conclude that you're surprisingly naive...

              Years ago a friend of mine owned a Auto salvage yard in Idaho. He had several hundred Thirties, Forties and Fifties model cars, and was always being the victim of "midnight auto sales" people and unwanted trespassers. Then an old farmer told him to buy a couple dozen Geese and turn them loose in his salvage yard, they keep the weeds down and VERY effective in running off unwanted guests. He did and the midnight auto sale stopped almost immediately. He said he could hear the geese startup a racket and people hollering whenever any one came aboard with out permission. He kept a couple old pickup trucks for his customers to drive down through the yard to look for parts along with the warning to get back in the pickup if the geese spotted them.

                Matter of fact--didn't mean for a political statement--Sorry.

                  Well, perhaps I am naive, but I took it as a simple statement of fact.

                  Now, what I do think is political is accusing someone of being political when they are only stating facts. All too often, those who seek to call out others are, themselves, guilty of the very offense they accuse those others of.

                  And yes, I know this can go round and round so don't bother.

                  And if you look REAL close at an analog signal,
                  You will find that it has discrete steps.

                    A lot of folks are scared of geese, but a boot isn't and the geese don't like it. They are great alarms though, I think even the Romans are said to have used them.

                    A drugstore outside of Cleveland Oh had trouble with "midnight sales". They got 3 caimans, basically like a 24 inch alligator. No more problems. I've been to it, and saw the lizards, so it's not just a story.

                      I thought there were "rights of way" across otherwise private land that have existed for hundreds of years, and are legally protected? Not true any more?

                        Jerry, yes you are right. There are footpaths and bridleways across which anyone can walk at any time but you must stay to the footpath. The so called Right to Roam does exist but only in open parts of the country so in moorland and on mountains, basically where land is not enclosed. There are also differences in law between the various countries for example trespass as a legal entity does not exist in Scotland.

                            I've often thought of erecting a sign that states:

                            No Trespassing. Violators remains will never be found.
