The cycle path from Mungo Park to the Murrayhill underpass being used as a private driveway, with a sign for East Kilbride's cycle route 1 hidden behind a bush.

The path to the canal could not only be wider, and have a dropped kerb at the end, but could also meet the road nearer the corner to avoid being blocked by parked vehicles. The priority sign to the right needs corrected too.

Painted cycle lanes don’t work, especially if the council just keeps turning a blind eye to those who abuse it. I tried to speak to the guy in the car and ask why he thought it was okay for him to park there, no response. @GoBikeGlasgow ... [more]

The only (?) Segregated cycleway between Midlothian and the city and it's used as parking on a frequent basis for housing development. @lmacinnessnp @SEStCC @SpokesLothian https://t.co/MknV62iylB

This type of infra is excellent but will be wasted money unless protective measures are included too. @GlasgowCC @collin_little @GoBikeGlasgow https://t.co/QRSaqPbHhQ

Parking on the pavement can be very dangerous https://twitter.com/dashcamnetwork/status/1082573580561498113 . No excusing the actions of the driver of the Black diesel Corsa but the vans parked on the pavement obstruct the view. No excusing ... [more]

When the tiny bit of cycle infrastructure in BIRMINGHAM is treated with respect. FFS. https://t.co/PqI3Gadecd

Look, I know it's shit infrastructure, just a bit of paint, but there's multistorey and surface car parking within a couple of hundred metres. I have to cycle against the flow of motorised traffic because you're a selfish twat. Thanks. ... [more]

They're still at it @AnnaLangside @GoBikeGlasgow @GlasgowCC Really think the segregation needs to be more substantial https://t.co/08xkctm49Z

How am I supposed safely cycle up this street if cars are parked in the contraflow cycle lane, forcing me into on coming traffic? @GlasgowCC @AnnaLangside https://t.co/jcbx6GVDyv

Obstructive parking in Craigton Road, next to a partially empty ASDA car park.

Northwall Road in @noordinarypark. This is what happens when you build a neighbourhood with no public car parking, but don’t provide the infrastructure to allow people to use public transport, walk, or cycle there. #olympiclegacy https:// ... [more]

Kirk Wynd looking towards the High Street, with a taxi parked across the courtesy crossing.

If it's not for cars then it's alright to park across. Still no surfaced connection to NCN7.

The usual obstructive parking encroaching the door-zone cycle lane and pavement parking in Alderman Road. Maybe it's time for the Alderman Road scheme to be ripped up and a cycleway built next to the footway and car parking placed next to t ... [more]

The new cycle lane in Archerhill Road needs swept, and a motorist has decided to park in the gap between orcas at the BMX centre entrance.

A big sign for the roundabout at the end of Callendar Boulevard, but motorway regulations do not apply immediately on the road to the right. This sign is in effect a 'No Turn Right' sign for non-motorway traffic, and completely bogus.

The car parking in the Callendar Boulevard painted cycle lanes resumes, but with no waiting restrictions to force drivers to take their cars to the car parks, it appears the council approves.

The exit from Callendar Park onto Callendar Boulevard, where cars are regularly left blocking the painted cycle lanes.

The narrow cycle lane on Kelso Street bridge with footway car parking. No waiting restrictions so the assumption must be that the council approves of this.

A cycle lane designed for car parking. Let's not pretend this is designed for cycling.

Car parking in the under construction cycle track in Archerhill Road, opposite the, erm, car parking layby.

Car parking on the under construction cycle track in Archerhill Road.

The entrance to the path at Bredisholm Road is being used as a parking space.

Car parking at the entrance to the Monkland Canal towpath. One more and access to the kissing gate (beyond car) becomes very tricky.

Why people cycling don’t use the provided infrastructure #7639. Approached a taxi driver blocking this same section earlier. Pointed out the solid white. He shrugged. ‘I’m dropping someone off’. Glasgow. https://t.co/j4xUZ4yLuT

When I turned into Holmfauld Place from Govan Road I noticed a white line on the footway. On investigation, it turns out the only way onto this shared cycleway is via the dropped kerb next to the black car.

This is what a painted bike lane means @PeopleByresRoad @GlasgowCC @glendalegaelic @walkcyclevote St Andrew's Drive https://t.co/xSJ0xYx8OH

What's that rule about not parking within so many metres of a junction? A car parked blocking entrance to the cycle track, so that it becomes easier to go around the other side of the traffic island to get to Lorne Street.

No access to the cycle track from the side road. Not unique.

Well, it's partly clear.

I'm not sure this is the intended use for an area marked 'Keep Clear'.

Footway parking along Nithsdale Road on the climb up from Dumbreck station.

"Welcome to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital" if arriving on foot or by bike.

Footway parking on Waterfront Avenue has reached its magnificent worst this morning. You can see where the bollards were removed and the end result. Frequently meet cars head on on the cycle track. https://t.co/yHlOgGBuJc

The northern footway of Govan Road, between Harvie Street and Pacific Drive, has been rebuilt as shared use, including a marked buffer zone between it and the carriageway. However, the dropped kerb for anyone exiting Festival Park now has a ... [more]

When this area at Partick station was repaved, I thought it might be getting prepared for the installation of the large double decker bike racks, given the congestion on the existing cycle parking. But no, it has been getting used for car p ... [more]

Literally nowhere else to park! (*not)

How is anyone to safely use Leith Walk cycle lane when this is a daily sight @edinhelp @Edinburgh_CC @leithsworstpark https://t.co/CkMQTEgq8c

The Doune Quadrant/Doune Gardens problem is still very much there.

Texting, engine running, not aware of those around her...

What is the point of advisory cycle lanes? Cumbernauld Rd today, both sides covered in parked cars @AnnaLangside @GlasgowCC @policescotland https://t.co/ze1547or7Z

'Bus / cycle lane'

The new administration at Glasgow City Council wasted no time in "standardising" (downgrading) all 24-hour bus lanes in Glasgow to operate only 7am-7pm, but this peak-hour bus lane remains peak-hours only. Enforcement is unchanged.

Footway car parking outside new student accommodation, including reversing across the shared-use footway/cycleway. There is plenty available on-road car parking, and a cheap all-day car park next door (behind the trees).

It must be the weather that puts people off cycling in Glasgow, or the hills...

A cycle bypass has been built for the junction, but left vulnerable to blockage by car parking. Again, no signage.

A car blocking the dropped kerb at the top of the ramp from Hillpark Drive. The path itself is not particularly smooth.

A car parked over a dropped kerb that forms part of the Silverburn to Pollokshaws & Newlands cycle route.

Plenty of car parking infrastructure in Yorkhill, but proper bike parking is hard to find. However, contraflow cycling is allowed on the one-way streets.

The cycle lane shifts from the kerbside to the door-zone.

The narrow door-zone cycle lane swerves into the back of some parked cars. On the other side of the road, there's a car parked partly in the cycle lane, partly on the footway.

The Broomhouse cycle lane goes over a flattened build-out, then becomes a painted door-zone cycle lane.

A woman almost hit by car at this zebra this morning. Driver's view obstructed by vehicles parked on zigzag in middle of road @Glasgowcc >> https://t.co/83ZilN4JZZ

Cars being parked on the Kelvin Walkway and West City Way, because someone has removed some of the bollards that mark the limit of the car park.

Getting from Sandy Road to NCN7 on Beith Street involves negotiating a maze of parked cars and kerbs.

Contraflow cycling on the road to Yorkhill Hospital. Not much room for passing other than vacant car parking spaces, but downhill for an easy restart.

Since my last visit, two dropped kerbs have been installed, but one of them is completely blocked by a parked car.

I'm not sure how the cycle lane helps anything. The parked cars are more of a hazard than a low traffic sideroad with good sightlines.

Overflow car parking at the college.

A car parked across the dropped kerb for the route (74) crossing. The sign post isn't much better.

A recommended route for cyclists, along the A724.

Primary school children are expected to cycle along the A724 with only painted cycle lanes for "protection" on route (74).

A motorist that doesn't understand how the footway works. A bus stop bypass with zebra crossing.

Cars parked blocking a dropped kerb, leaving only just enough room for a standard bike to squeeze through.

Genius https://t.co/rKMaJkTbOR

Car parked in Holmston Road cycle lane at entrance to riverside walkway.

On the climb to the top of the hill one is rewarded with leaves and regular car parking in the cycle lane.

Linlithgow sure knows how to present its historic monuments!

Car parking bays painted on the expensive stone paving slabs, and hardly any space left for pedestrians. But still the motorists haven't got enough space and double park.

Someone decided to pave the parking bays with expensive stone paving slabs. What a waste!

Construction of new building finally completed, and Abbey Street cycle crossing still obstructed.The two cars on the left are on double yellow lines.

A car parked on NCN75.

Went to 3rd Don Crossing to check infra. Note how they have organised priority for cyclists. Ofc you can still park https://t.co/p1FTmJ80vz

@ErnieMarples @magnatom @FMcAveety Presumably this "cycle lane" on Govan Rd is also included in km total #pointless https://t.co/ZbbBvLyXlq

Welcome to Belfast II. Bike path completely blocked. https://t.co/oWHo3NnQOJ

This car has been blocking the shared use path on Neilston Rd for 4 days running. Can you help, @EastRenCouncil? https://t.co/YWiGTNsKRu

Speeding, pavement parking and rat running, just a typical Manchester street. Just posting 20 mph speed limit signs is not enough on a wide residential street. https://twitter.com/juststepsways/status/709841734285598720 https://juststepside ... [more]

Advisory Cycle Lane On Parry's Lane

A new contraflow cycle lane on Cardonald Place Road ahead, but no exemption for cycles from the mandatory turn into Cardonald Gardens. In the distance, cars parked in the contraflow lane, just like in #71119.

Car parking obstructing NCN75/NCN756 on the Clyde Walkway at the Broomielaw.

Filtered Permeablity With Car Parking Slalom

"We don't anticipate any problems" with illegal parking on the cycleway, @GlasgowCC said. Aww, isn't that sweet. http://t.co/TZKSAF4cLe

The door-zone cycle lane in Albert Drive reverts to the kerbside.

The westbound cycle lane in Albert Drive is also in the door-zone.

The Albert Drive cycle lane reverts to the kerbside.

The Albert Drive cycle lane moves from kerbside to the door-zone.

The start of the Albert Drive cycle lane. Designed to be parked in.

@sallyonbike @NewCycling @NewcastleCC sign still there, and even a car parked this morning. @GedBell http://t.co/JsaBgLPMsm

Hopefully the yellow paint marks indicate that bollards are to be installed and the 'No Entry' signs taken down. The tactiles could be corrected and the electrical cabinet moved at the same time.

The cycletrack gets narrower at the car parking layby, presumably to offer protection from the door-zone. But it just juts out without any transition.

Following on from #70935, once across the footway, cyclists are provided with a painted cycle lane that follows a right-angled bend around the end of Southgate, before heading towards Park Road. But there will always be parked cars here. Su ... [more]

Such a nonsense to put a painted kerbside cycle lane in a dead-end (for motors) street that is always going to be full of residential car parking.

The cycleway and footway are vulnerable to rogue car parking in this area. The width of the junction opening doesn't help with this. But are those yellow painted markings indicating a rethink on the kerbs? UPDATE: #71206 shows new kerb a ... [more]

The segregated cycle track ends for a brief section of shared-use either side of the Carnoustie Place toucan crossing. But there are also parked cars on this shared footway.

Car parking in the Gourock Street contraflow cycle lane and on the footway.

Is the designer of this facility designing for triangular cars in the parking bay? Cycle lane in the doorzone.

Just as suddenly as when it started (in #70539) the cycle lane jumps back to the kerbside, just in time for some car parking.

Intermittent cycle lanes and car parking. Plus central hatching showing how much space is available to waste.
