This is not entirely true. I have seen police many times chasing people away & ticketing those who park illegally along 23A. Still some people try to squeeze in there.

I think I made my statements pretty clear. I will never advocate for less people to see nature anywhere. More people will probably cause more accidents to occur. And as I said I do not know what the answer is. None of these statements are conflicting or dichotomous.

The answer is probably going to include development around the area, maybe even installing boardwalks with railings or other things to increase safety. Ausible chasm comes to mind, that place was probably extremely dangerous and inaccessible until it was developed. Adding additional parking to relieve some of the pressure on 23A seems like a good start to me.
