Since the invention of the automobile, parking in densely populated urban areas has been an issue. This collection of essays explores the attempt to manage vehicular traffic and urban car ownership through parking policy. Intended for urban planners and transportation policy makers, the authors examine how programs like ride share, road pricing, and parking supply regulation can reduce overall car traffic and pollution in urban areas. As many urban areas try to shift away from car parking to public transportation, many are adopting car free zones and decreasing the availability of parking spaces in highly congested areas. Case studies consider parking policy in the U.S., U.K., Australia, and China and how each has attempted used parking controls to regulate urban traffic movement. Distributed in North
