The assumption of the need for constraints underlies discussion of congestion in cities, but local authorities appear reluctant to extend restriction for fear of alienating the public. The main instrument of restraint is likely to be intensification of existing parking control and pricing. Enforcement is a separate and major problem with existing methods and new techniques of restraint offer little scope for reducing the difficulties of enforcement. Land use planning can be important, but the most effective and acceptable policy is likely to be a combination of constraints and incentives (particularly in the form of improved public transport). The number of the covering abstract of the textbook is irrd abstract no 212297. /TRRL/
