Vehicle ownership in France has reached the level of 300 cars per 1000 inhabitats and is expected to reach 400 in 1985. This means at least 30 million parking places. The solutions adopted in the USA, which do not have cities with historic centers but towns divided in regular geometric xones, cannot be used in France. Attention is drawn to the use which can be made of paying parking and of the distinction between parking of visitors and that of workers. Various measures applied in France are reviewed, and the need is stressed for an overall parking policy and organizational planning. Several examples of solutions adopted for specific cases are given. /TRRL/
