This data flow is used within the Manage Traffic function and contains the strategy which has been selected for implementation at parking lots to control their use. The strategy will be designed to promote or discourage the use of a parking lot by directing vehicles to or away from it through the use of dynamic message signs (DMS). The decision on which strategy to employ will depend upon such things as the overall traffic management strategy, the need to restrict vehicle use because of a number of factors e.g. congestion, pollution, and the desire to encourage travelers to make use of alternative modes of transport by using park and ride (P+R) facilities. The strategy may be applied to some or all of the parking lots in the geographic area served by the TMC. The data flow consists of the following data items each of which is defined in its own DDE:
