    Abstract

    This study reports on the findings based on observations from sites with parallel and angle parking layouts. The main parameters under consideration were the manoeuvre time for parking or unparking and the gap acceptance to merge into the traffic stream when leaving a parking stall. The results showed that the design of on-street parking layouts strongly affects drivers’ parking and unparking behaviour. Alternative suggestions to the design of parking stalls were made depending on local conditions.
