The cycle route from Blantyre leaves Wilson Place to join NCN756, but no mention of NCN756 on the sign. A dropped kerb at the end of the path would be of assistance to anyone cycling to or from Wilson Place itself.

An entrance to the Calderglen Country Park, with steps.

Brancumhall Road looking towards St Leonards Road, and to the right a path to an underpass.

Footway parking partially on the shared footway outside the Alison Lea Medical Centre. Google Streetview shows a greater degree of obstruction in its image.

The end of the Calderwood Road section of the cycle route to Brancumhall, and some footway parking outside the Alison Lea Medical Centre.

The Calderwood Road shared footway, with a bus shop, footway parking, and a pinch-point crossing on the road across to a school.

New housing on the outskirts of East Kilbride that, despite appearances, doesn't have adequate provision for car storists' needs.

The cycle lane up West Thomson Street.

Obstructive pavement parking on the shared-use footway on Dalsholm Road between the Garscube Estate path and the Kelvin Walkway, forcing riders onto the crumbling carriageway. There is a free car park at the top of the hill in the backgroun ... [more]

Signage for the Drumchapel Way on Halgreen Avenue.

A poor quality shared-use footway on Halgreen Avenue. The other side of the road doesn't even have a footway, even though it is outside a school!

Commercial van parking in the painted cycle lane on Port Dundas Road.

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

Manchester in Trafford. Sale M33 . Even with a narrow footpath motors will drive and park on pavement and directly underneath a @irwellvalley CCTV camera as well. A pedestrian wheelchair dropped kerb obstructed as well.

Glasgow's joined up infra as it transitions from segregated to 'shared with pedestrians'. A pole and a parked van. Nice. https://t.co/I1zYIvWeLB

The nearest dropped kerb to the start of the path to Falkirk High station (see #103464) is on a very narrow section of footway, and together with the barriers makes for a needlessly awkward piece of cycling.

A kerb and barriers across the start of the newly rebuilt path to Falkirk High station. There is a dropped kerb but it's off to the left (see #103465).

Superb example of inappropriate pavement parking and encroachment onto a roundabout from the ever inconsiderate @ArnoldClark @ACHelpTeam It’s no wonder the concrete is sinking. @BadParkersUK https://t.co/TFDuYXL0qv

A wide pavement with a really crummy painted cycleway and pavement-parked cars. This side of the city seemed to have worse infrastructure than the other side. But selfish pavement parking is widespread here.

Pavement parking is the scourge of Romania.

Entitled driver's reaction to #carfreeday https://t.co/E6vXC6RfX1

Tameside nr Manchester on the Lord Sheldon Way . This states the obvious but more of these are required to prevent obstruction of the footway especially when it is shared like here. Also enforcement notices are very welcome.

Another vehicle parked on the widened shared-use footway in Dyke Road. See also #99500.

A mobile shop van parked on a footway buildout rather than using an empty parking space nearer the static shops. The bus stop is only served by the once-a-day service 709. This section of road used to have a cycle lane that followed t ... [more]

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 A9 shared-use footway/cycleway turns a corner into Mungalend and just ends. The A9 itself continues without any cycle provision. The car parked on the footway across the junction has 'for sale' notices in the window. Buy from a pavem ... [more]

A metal barrier and a parked Falkirk Council van blocking the shared footway/cycleway at the A9 roundabout.

Another professional dog walker using the shared-use footway for van parking.

The dropped kerb required for cycling along the path in #100561, if it were not blocked by the parked van, is always obstructed by the lamppost. The 'No Through Road' needs an 'except cycles' sign if the path is to be considered to be pa ... [more]

Cars parked all over the footways of Crown Road South.

Bike parking needed here. (There's some hidden behind the van.)

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 new cycle route under construction on Dyke Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. A shared footway is going in here, and some education of the locals on the purpose of the shared footway appears to be necessary.

A new shared footway on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. The purpose of the shared footway appears to be lost on the locals.

A new shared footway on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park.

Glasgow's newest cycle project.

Professionally driven - NOT!

Vehicle parking on the footway appears to be a problem here. The shared use footway crosses to the other side of Summertown Road here, not that you'd notice.

I despair - pavement, double yellow lines and right by a major cycle route - in Leith this morning https://t.co/Dcssr3FgcY

Cars parked on the shared-use pavement with double-yellow lines. Typical.

Typical selfish driver behaviour.

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

Van parked on the pavement - complete lack of enforcement here

Lorry parked on the pavement - complete lack of enforcement here

If only police did follow this van... @GlasgowUni @carsickglasgow https://t.co/mrVSsWn7Yi

@GlasgowCC @SandraWhiteSNP @carsickglasgow Double whammy of cycle lane (SWCW) and pavement parking today. https://t.co/wUzUaKvBq7

Blocked cycleway outside garage.

Lots of footway parking and another car in the cycleway, outside car garage. Since there are 3 lanes on the road, why not create a parking bay on this side of the road, reducing traffic lanes to one each way? This problem isn't going to van ... [more]

Lots of pavement parking by motorists outside Shields Road subway station in Scotland Street, despite the huge multistorey car park built for the purpose next door. Still only a single cycle parking stand.

Three coaches from Allander Travel parked partly on the footway, on double yellow lines and completely blocking the Colleges Route cycle lane on University Avenue.

Poor surface on downhill section of shared-use footway/cycleway, not helped by footway parkers such as the van driver seen leaving.

Quality Infrastructure in Stockton-on-Tees, Shame On Audi Driver

What's that? Why yes! That IS a lorry parked on a shared space footpath http://t.co/eVrLLE9W2Y

Painted cycle lane, and some footway parking.

Despite this dead-end road being massively wide, motorists are still choosing to park their vehicles on or obstructing the footway!

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.

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]

A van parked on the footway outside West Street subway startion, when there is plenty of space to park legally and for free on the road. The cycle route crosses the footway to join the segregated cycle track on the other side of the road ... [more]

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.

. @policescotland why is it acceptable for your officers to cause such an unnecessary obstruction? http://t.co/cVImTqKPrw

Car parking on an already poor quality shared use footway along The Avenue.

Cycle parking damaged by pavement parking, and some more pavement parking.

Cycle parking at Mann Island, and expensive paving being used as a car park behind.

A car and a van parked on double yellow lines, the shared-use footway, and blocking the dropped kerb where cyclists are expected to join the roadway. But there isn't any enforcement around here.

I'm not sure what the designers were thinking here.
