Traffic Regulation Order (TRO)

An official order made by a council under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 and which details the nature and extent of parking controls within the council's area. It is a contravention of these controls as detailed in a TRO that may give rise to the issuing of a Penalty Charge Notice. The same Orders are frequently known as Traffic Management Orders (TMOs) within London.
