|The old town centre of Perugia is closed in by two rings of Etruscan and late-Medieval walls. The old town is developed in five directions that include five different old quarters that sprung up as from the 14th century. In order to preserve the old centre and render it usable by all, a limited traffic zone known as Zona a Traffico Limitato (ZTL) has been implemented to limit access for cars. The area is under surveillance by a Sistema Integrato del Traffico Urbano (SITU) system that automatically controls cars entering the area from the outside and is able to provide information on the number of places available for parking.
|Entrance to the old town is allowed at the following times:

Restricted traffic area control system
|To control access to the limited traffic zone SITU has positioned surveillance postings on the three streets that lead into the area (Indipendenza, Battisti, Sposa). These postings work using an arial to detect authorised vehicles and a camera that photographs the number plates of unauthorised cars that enter the area. Photographs of unauthorised cars entering the area are sent to the Polizia Municipale who sends out fines to the owner of the vehicle.
