Parking across a cycle track traffic filter. This area is a Controlled Parking Zone "park in marked bays only".

This @G4S van was abandoned in the centre of Glasgow this afternoon, completely blocking the main cycle route to the west and forcing people into oncoming traffic at a busy corner. @polscotrpu @MyGlasgowCC @GoBikeGlasgow @walkcyclescot @POP ... [more]

Not again! A driver parking in the cycle lane on University Avenue, and across part of the junction mouth of Kelvin Way.

Kelvingrove Park being used as a car park by drivers. This is meant to be a car-free zone!

I see the new cycle infrastructure on Lime Street is being well used. 🙄 https://t.co/L0P52xZ51x

The road end cycle track completely blocked by parked cars in Claremont Street.

Why, @CambsCC, does electric car infrastructure have to take up pavement rather than road space? And @alexandrabulat, how is this compatible with the Riverside promenade vision? https://t.co/ocOpWJVRp9

A newly installed dropped kerb at the east end of Henderson Street, but the corresponding dropped kerb in Napiershall Street has an occupied marked parking bay across it.

In an almost empty street (see #183811), one of the few vehicles parked is blocking the dropped kerb for Garriochmill Way. A build-out is required, as well as removing the parking bay markings.

The University Avenue mandatory cycle lane chock-a-block with parked cars, and pavement parking on the opposite side where there is no cycle lane.

[Image taken 26.6.22] B&Q, Rawcliffe/Clifton Moor, York. Signage has appeared on the walls facing the disabled car parking spaces - in addition to the clear logos and blue paint in the bays. I hope signage 'to' and at the cycle parking will ... [more]

How fragile the motor traffic free status of Kelvin Way can seem.

Commercial drivers have realised that there are no consequences from failing to comply with laws.

Not sure what's going on, but I've never seen so much obstructive car parking on the footway here.

The mandatory cycle lane in University Avenue blocked by a lorry driver with his lorry, forcing a rider off her bike.

[Image taken 14.5.22] Railway Walk/Marygate car park direction of Frederic Street/Hetherton Street, York. [NOTE: No streetview at this location] Two of the three 'formal' gaps (though they are hardly 'formal' entrances/exits) in the fencing ... [more]

Cars parked in what little cycle lane there is in Byres Road.

Deep sigh. No, this is not acceptable. #SouthWestCityWay https://t.co/6KkLjsPSht

Motor-vehicle generated graffiti in Central Milton Keynes. It appears to be a tyre mark and very circular. My motorcycling relative tells me it's called a donut.

[Image taken 23.4.22] Monks Cross, close to cycle-ped access to Monks Cross Drive, Huntington/York. [NOTE: No streetview at this location.] No buffer zone between the car parking and the cycle route. See also: #181981, #181982. Other images ... [more]

More car parking in the University Avenue cycle lanes, across the Kelvin Way access.

Motor vehicle storage at right angles to the road makes this an even more intimidating place to cycle than the heavy traffic that passes through this horrible town centre.

A motor vehicle storage facility, Hull.

Motor vehicles litter the site of George Eliot hospital, Nuneaton.

Car parking but no cycle parking at the Broadway Hotel, Letchworth

Outside the One Garden City museum, Letchworth - acres of space for cars, the only cycle parking is at the supermarket on the far side.

Obviously the car park closure doesn't apply to us.

As much car parking as they can squeeze in at this church but no cycle stands.

One car club space and three for charging e-cars

[Image taken 19.1.22] Aldi, Water Lane, York. [NOTE: No streetview at this location.] This is the access to/from the supermarket for cyclists, peds, mobility scooters and wheelchair users. But if - as is not uncommon - all the parent and ch ... [more]

Just what I needed, matey sleeping in the cycle lane on Garscube Road https://t.co/jhW5lhrWNe

Not a care in the world about any inconvenience their parking may cause.

Don't stand a chance do we 🙄🙄 @nigelbagshaw https://t.co/8AzJDcwcsC

A parked van blocking access to the new cycleway on Benalder Street.

Security cordon by the US embassy, Roma - but of course someone has managed to park a car in it.

If parking spaces are given to a restaurant for Covid-safe outdoor eating, Rome's car drivers will just park alongside.

The bus was blocking the road for a long time because someone left a car in a stupid place. Normal for Roma.

There could be great cycleways in Roma if only there weren't cars parked absolutely everywhere they can be squeezed in.

Institutionalised double parking in Roma - the cars on the right can't move until those on the left have gone.

There's double-parking everywhere in Roma (see also the Streetview and satellite images)

Cars park everywhere in Rome, including on the temporarily inactive tramlines.

The slip-road is closed - but somehow drivers manage to park on it.

"Park only in marked bays" on Kelvin Way.

Pavement parking outside the school gates in Dornal Avenue.

Double yellow lines have returned to Hamilton Drive, but without enforcement they are being ignored by drivers. This is a "park only in marked bays" area, as seen in #167952.

A council van has been parked on the footway at the entrance to the Kelvingrove Art Gallery car park, obstructing families trying to walk past. The footway also forms part of the West City Way cycleway, since the adjacent carriageway is one ... [more]

The incomplete Old Dumbarton Road cycleway is unusable for cycling, but is being used for parking vans.

A van parked in the Lancefield Quay armadillo-protected cycle lane, forcing cyclists to choose between going out into the road to pass, or to mount the footway. Even in fairly light traffic conditions, some chose the latter. The parking tic ... [more]

Such desperation to park at any cost.

Why? Why would you not just park your van in the space? #ComistonRoad https://t.co/Wndys7gWOX

Cars being parked on the footway of Garscube Road, rather than in the place indicated by a single yellow line on the road. Not helped by a waiting peak restrictions sign being next to the double yellow lines.

Waitrose, Foss Islands Road, York. [Note: No street view at this location.] The company has created space for two e-charging bays but can't find room for more cycle parking. Hypocrisy. Other images from Waitrose and other locations today: # ... [more]

Car parking on the "Keep Clear" markings and across what the traffic order said was legal to cycle through (although it has never been properly signed) on the traffic filter.

The sign on the gate says "No Parking" but there is no enforcement. The footway forms the link between the partly installed toucan crossing across Craighall Road and the canal path.

A van driver parked in the protected cycle lane and on the footway, while pedestrians try to get by.

The windscreen wipers on many of the motor vehicles on this side of the street have been lifted up.

Electric vehicles charging point in Hinckley.

New development seemingly designed with on footway motor vehicle storage.

On the left a Loading Bay, and ahead some pavement parking loading activity. See also #173732.

There are some tightly spaced cycle parking stands next to the entrance door, in addition to those in #173563, and some bikes were visible inside the doorway. Despite there being parking spaces on the opposite side of the road, this driv ... [more]

Broken glass and a parked van blocking the contraflow cycle lane in Cleland Street. The lane and path to the left over to Gorbals Street was also blocked by parked motor vehicles.

The Nicholson Street cycle track exists to provide a safe link between Norfolk Court and the South Portland Street Suspension Bridge, but is being abused by motorists. It has lost its signs and the markings are somewhat faded.

The Nicholson Street cycle track has lost its signs, has faded markings, and is being used for car and van parking, and is being illegally driven through. Just next to the Sheriff Court! The link was put in to provide a safe link between ... [more]

The eastern end of the Herbertson Street cycle track suffers from a severe fly parking problem, with cars and vans parked on the footway as well as over the dropped kerb for exiting the cycle track.

Derby has made the entire city centre a no-pavement-parking zone since 2015. The council believes it to be successful with less pedestrian complaints, and are considering expanding it to other areas of the city. https://t.co/68svSrpGPj

A one-way system around roads used as a car park, and only pedestrians can go in the opposite direction.

Parked van blocking dropped kerb, and obstructing people cycling. No attempt to discourage parking here. Failure to reinstate cycleway markings after roadworks.
