When it comes to the urbanisation process, where street is a must, parking demand has of great importance since it is a part of transportation system. Inadequate parking allocations will contribute to other problems regarding road safety and congestion. A review of 16 studies in 11 international cities around the world shows that on average, 30% of traffic is looking for a parking space with 8.1 minutes of parking search time [1]. In addition, a survey on illegal parking done by RAC Foundation in the U.K. found that 48% of the respondents admitted to illegally parked their vehicles [2]. High parking demand is not only the main issues in commercial and business centre areas in many towns, but also in residential areas [3], resulting in no informal safe crossing points for children [2].
