POLITICAS DE ESTACIONAMIENTO
Parking, as an integral part of highway matters, has been regulated in the United States and Europe since the 1920's. The most advanced countries require that every new building provides adequate parking facilities. The author cites examples of public service parking in many important world cities, emphasizing Mexico City, and concludes that highway planning must no longer consider the road only, but also the storage of vehicles at the end of each trip. The city that does not provide for public and private parking will be increasing the problem of congestion and increasing operating costs to the road user. Parking places will give better service precisely where the demand exists. Cities which have opted for integral plans for parking in the commercial center have less traffic congestion and more commercial business. If private industry is not sufficiently responsive to the demand for parking facilities, the government must take over the responsibility. (Author)
