It is important that no car was blocked. For example,
in Veikko's variant the car a(1,1) is blocked, such that
even a good driver could not leave, if the leaving is through
the right border. Then David's variant is the best.
If the leaving is through either right or downside, then
the Rob's variant is the best.
Finally, if to ignore such a requirement (e.g., the leaving is
through all borders), then we have 36 cars:

The 30 car solution seems to me to conform to Patricia Marx's text. What
misinterpretation do you think you made?
I don't know why Marx's solution to her own problem only had 16 cars. Maybe
she had in mind some unstated conditions or, more likely in my opinion, she
just didn't work very hard on coming up with an optimal solution.
