PARKING POLICY AS A TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT TOO

This paper applies traffic management to planning for parking. Traffic management relies on the interaction of traffic engineering methods, separation of road users, especially pedestrians from vehicles, establishment of public transport priorities and restriction of car parking. These same elements of traffic management must be applied to parking policy. A successful parking policy should consider the conflicting desires of the road users; it should consider parking as part of a complete journey rather than as just a vehicle at rest.
