The introduction of Autonomous vehicles is currently under consideration as an innovative mobility option. However, in addition to ensuring a safe driving space, the introduction of automated driving systems will also pose a challenge in terms of how to limit the number of vehicles parked on the road. In this study, a micro traffic simulator was used to understand the influence of vehicle performance, loading zone and its surrounding environment factors in a society where automated driving is prevalent, using average travel speed as an evaluation item. In addition, the combination of these factors was used to identify the street environment in which the stopping of vehicles should be limited. As a result, it became clear that increasing the frequency of stopping and the rate of right and left turns is a factor that reduces travel speed, and that if the rate of right and left turns on the connecting road is high, the installation of a loading zone should not be allowed depending on the frequency of stopping and vehicle performance.
