The park system of parking control was introduced to Cork in March 1975. Parkers purchase park system 'discs' and indicate their time of arrival on these discs, which cannot be reused. A before-and-after study to monitor the effectiveness of this system found that the volume of traffic in the city centre was reduced. The number of parked vehicles inside the park system zone decreased, but there appeared to be a corresponding increase on the streets outside the zone. The modal split remained approximately the same. Illegal on-street parking inside the zone decreased significantly. The system earned a substantial profit during its first year of operation.(a) /TRRL/
