      Abstract

      This paper describes the characteristics of vehicle manoeuvres when entering or leaving on-street parking. Those manoeuvres are often ignored by traffic engineers in the design process and the evaluation of traffic management schemes. However, they can contribute to the cause of congestion especially when traffic volumes are high. Two types of on-street parking behaviour have been observed on two sites within the Greater Manchester Area. These include legal and illegal on-street parking. The first type may include parallel on-street parking and angle parking. This study shows that on-street angle parking has more potential to create congestion than that of parallel parking.
