This issue of Current Topics includes over 70 abstracts of reports, conference papers, books and journal articles which focus on recent developments in parking technology. Amongst the specific topics covered are: equipment for parking payment, pay and display, multi-bay parking, smart cards and other forms of cashless parking, enforcement systems, automated parking systems, advanced parking information systems including the use of Variable Message Signs to optimise the car park spaces and intelligent barrier systems. These items have been selected from the material added to the Transport Research Laboratory's Library Database between 1997 and 1999. Much of the relevant English language literature from the UK, USA, Australia and Europe is included; some of the non-UK literature is included courtesy of the OECD International Road Research Documentation (IRRD) database.
