Proposed features/Street Parking Restriction
|Status:||Proposed (under way)|
|Proposed by:||Essex Boy|
In order to identify street parking restrictions on road geometry lines I am proposing that this feature be supported by OpenStreetMap. This proposal would provide the following parking restriction attributes to road line geometry:
- Whether a parking restriction is in place on a particular road element: yes/no.
- Particular time domain restrictions on that road element.
- Type of restriction in place: Fee, Local Parking Card, No Parking Allowed.
- Whether there is a no return time restriction in force.
The rationale behind this feature is that when route planning to a destination it is quite common for end users to want to navigate to the nearest parking space that is free of any monetary costs- often street parking. Having this feature in OSM would allow users to select either free street parking or to at least be navigated to the nearest free parking space to their destination. It is also useful to have if an end user is unsure whether parking on a particular street is allowed. In some countries where residential permits are required, there are not always obvious street signs indicating this is the case.
parking_restriction_time=[allow time restriction information (see http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Conditional_restrictions) or the number of minutes allowed for parking upon arrival.]
parking_fee=[cost per hour in local currency]
no_return=[number of minutes]
This feature is intended to be used only for road link line geometry.
This feature need not be rendered on the map- it's an attribute of the road line geometry used for the navigation routing engine only.
