Parking along a street. The value represents the position of parking, e.g. on the carriageway, beside the street in a street-side parking bay or on the sidewalk. If there is no parking, this should be mapped, too.

If there are different parking positions on both sides, use parking:left=* and parking:right=* instead.

If possible, add the parking orientation as well.

See the street parking page for more details about how to map parking along streets.
