Insufficient inspection induces some 40% of Dutch car owners in the cities to park their cars illegally. In 1982 a project was set up in Utrecht to find out how parking regulations could be best enforced. This project will cost G8,4 million and take four years. The paper discribes the methodology adopted to assess the effects of the measures on illegal parking and parking meter returns, on the economic operation of the city centre and on modal split. It investigates whether the quality of life in dwellings is improved and whether the parking attendant's motivation can be improved. The paper reports on the results so far.
