There are now parking lots in Santa Barbara, California that have designated spaces where senior citizens can park their cars in overnight. Why? Because they live in them. It is where they sleep and even keep their pets. The demand for housing in Northern Los Angeles for seniors has far surpassed the amount of housing units available. The waiting list is even closed.
So, now some are forced to live in their cars and some parking lots have made an effort to provide safe places for them to park overnight.
