To obtain data on the extent of usage of
On street parking
On street parking means the vehicles are
parked on the sides of the street itself. This
will be usually controlled by government
Parking bay like at the mall
1. Select a suitable off-street parking area at Ungku Omar’s
Polytechnic (PUO) compound, such as in front of CISEC, Administration
Building or behind PUO basketball court car park. For our group, the
location of parking space is in front of the futsal court, Campus A.
2. Sketch the plans of the streets and the parking
plans using suitable symbols. List the number
of parking spaces provided in the car park area.
3. Take the frequency of the vehicle parked in every
15 minutes interval to be satisfactory for off-
4. Do the observation of vehicle arrivals and
departures for 1 1/(2 ) hour.
5. Perform analyze data
From this experiment, first of all, we must find the
parking area and determine the amount of parking
bays. The amount of parking bays in the area we
did the experiment which is confronted with the
Civil Engineering Department and next to the
administration office is 30 bays. The total of
vehicles in the parking lot is 166. It shows that the
peak hour is not that very peak because almost all
the lecturer is having a class. So the movement of
the car is very small. It takes a long time to change
the car in the parking lot.
Based on the experiment that we conducted, we
can conclude that the parking bay is always full
and it is very difficult for other car to park because
most of them will be parking cars until the end of
working hours. Especially this parking space is for
a lecturers and administration. Thus, the
management has to make an alternative parking
lot to provide more parking spaced for the
lecturers and the visitors and also to prevent it
from the traffic jam in the polytechnic. So, this will
make it easier for the lecturer, the administration
and also the students.
