Parking in Malta
In 2007, Valletta introduced controlled vehicle access to reduce parking times and traffic in the city center.
The KDA system automatically reads the license plate with special cameras in order to monitor when the vehicle is entering and exiting the monitored areas. The system then automatically calculates the time that the vehicle has remained in the area controlled by the CDA. Then the access and parking fees are calculated based on the tariffs issued by the traffic administration.
