This is the nineteenth puzzle that appears in Professor Layton and the Curious Village. To access this puzzle, you must examine the Laytonmobile. In order to solve this puzzle, you must direct the traffic to allow the Laytonmobile to reach the exit.

[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Just trying to clear the cars immediately in front of the professor's vehicle won't get you anywhere.

    Think about exactly what it is you'll need to do to clear a path to the lot exit.

Hint Two
    Don't be afraid to take a step back to move ahead two steps. You may need to move some things into the way to get them out of the way in the end.

    When you're moving cars around, be sure to keep in mind each car's directional limitations.

Hint Three
    To start, you'll need to move the two cars directly in front of the Laytonmobile. In order to do that, you'll first need to move the horizontally oriented car that sits right above those two vehicles.

    Once you've completed that task, move the Laytonmobile forward toward the exit. Then try to rearrange cars at the end of the lot opposite the exit.
