Traffic Regulation Orders (or "TROs") are legal documents developed by the traffic authority or it's agents such as the Parking Partnership, allowing the police and / or local authorities (e.g. Civil Enforcement Officers) to enforce various matters to do with the speed, movement, parking and other restrictions of pedestrians and vehicles, by law.

The principal legislation is:

• Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984

• Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions 2002

• Transport Act 2000

• Highways Act 1980

Most TROs come about as a result of input from local communities and the police, to address specific traffic congestion or quality of life issues. Traffic regulation orders can be used to prevent problems from happening, not just to stop the damage once it has already occurred.
