One of the problems of urban transport is parking planning. The population of Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) reached 8.6 million units in 2017, and about 80% of the total population owned motor vehicles with 7.6 million vehicles. The high rate of mechanization causes a large load on the existing transport infrastructure, negatively affecting the quality of life of residents and preventing the City government from achieving the goals of sustainable urban development. Transport management is a complex operation, including on-road parking systems. Ben Nghe Ward of District 1, located in the central area of Ho Chi Minh City, has become one of the pilot areas to deploy a new parking plan from 2018. After a year of pilot implementation, the effectiveness has not yet achieved the expected effect. Therefore, this study is proposed to evaluate new possibilities to maximize the effectiveness of future road management. Within the scope of this research paper, the topic of the research and the issues are raised as well as clarifying the scope of the research. Moreover, the research objectives and questions are made to begin research correctly. In addition, necessary research methods and data collection methods are also identified for successful research.
