Parking is one of the major problems that is created by the increasing road traffic. It is an impact on transport development. The availability of less space in urban areas has increased the demand for parking space, especially in areas like the central business district (CBD). This will affect the mode choice also. This has a high economic impact.
Before taking any measures for the betterment of the conditions, data regarding availability of parking space, the extent of its usage and parking demand is essential. The most common parking surveys conducted are in-out survey, fixed period sampling & license plate method of survey.
