In the context of road urban traffic management, the problem of parking spots search is a major issue because of its serious economic and ecological fallout. In this paper, we propose a multi-agent system that aims to decrease, for private vehicles drivers, the parking spots search time. In the system that we propose, a community of drivers shares information about spots availability. Our solution has been tested following different configurations. The first results show a decrease in parking spots search time.
