Defined the Problem

In Hangzhou, the traffic problem is horrible. On some roads, illegal cars stop obstructing traffic. Stopping on the side of the road to eat a car makes the road narrow, making the problem even worse. Parking in public is challenging. The problem of imbalance in the number of motor vehicles and the number of parking spaces is becoming more and more serious. The thing we have to do is to increase the utilization of the unit parking space.
