Limited Traffic Zones (ZTL) are main areas, generally in the historical center, born to limit the circulation in particular hours of the day; the access is allowed for residents, public transports, emergency vehicles and people with permission.

In Parma, some streets which enter the Limited Traffic Zones have cameras: in Viale Mariotti, Viale Toscanini and Piazzale Salvo D'Acquisto the access is forbidden from 7.30am to 7.30pm, in Via XXII Luglio from 7.30am to 11.30am and from 4.00pm to 7.00pm.

Parcometri Smart: to enter and park occasionally in a traffic limited area, it is possible to buy a ticket at one of the parking machines also paying by credit card Visa or Mastercard, the parking machines are located on Piazzale della Pilotta, viale Basetti (in front of number 6) and on Via Martiri della Libertà corner with Strada XXII Luglio, that means near the three traffic cameras.
It is possible to purchase a ticket for two hours (euros 5,00) and for one day (euros 10,00).

Cameras are indicated by advertising signs always lightened to notice access not allowed or access allowed.

With the new  parking plan the number of ZTL has been reduced to from six to three:
The new ZTL 1 includes the old ZTL 1 and 4.
The new ZTL 2 includes the old ZTL 2 and 5.
The new ZTL 3 includes the old ZTL 3 and 6.
