Abstract: A car or parking spot is placed at each vertex of an infinite graph. Cars drive in search of unparked spots. When a car finds one, both the car and spot are removed. Three distinct traffic flow phases arise as we vary the initial ratio of cars to spots. There is particularly intriguing behavior at criticality.
