Varchi zone a traffico limitato Parma


The electronic gate system ensures timely control of access to the Limited Traffic Zones (ZTL) of the city of Parma. As the vehicle passes, the camera reads the license plate number, automatically verifying whether the vehicle is authorised. The gates are well marked by illuminated boards active 24 hours a day: the sign “varco attivo” indicates that it is forbidden to enter without permission and the camera is active; when the camera is off, the “varco non attivo” is indicated, traffic is allowed.
