There's plenty of space for car parking, so couldn't they put a decent cycle route through here?

There are cars parked everywhere around Avignon TGV station.

A cycle lane on an already hostile road environment blocked by a taxi driver. The cycle lane leads to a slip onto the shared-use area at the toucan crossing.

A taxi parked in the contraflow cycle lane on Broadway.

A car driver parked on the contraflow cycle lane in Broadway, and another in the bus stop.

Park wherever you like in Britannia Street.

One of the perks of employee of the month is a parking space up front. Me, a member of @TheWarOnCars: https://t.co/gfcDLn0DD5 Outside the Science Museum of Virginia

A turn table outside the library in Shrewsbury. This seems to be for turning cars around rather than having the drivers attempt three point turns in the front garden of the former school of Charles Darwin.

A van parked partly on the footway, across the entrance to the path, and there is no sign or dropped kerb, plus the barrier seen in #109470.

Hi @haringeycouncil can you please send some parking enforcement to Wightman Road? There are cars completely obstructing the pavement at the moment - impossible as a pedestrian to get through without walking on a very busy road. https://t.c ... [more]

Thank you Glasgow City Council for building new cycle lanes on Victoria Road. Is there anyway you could stop vehicles using them as parking spaces? @GlasgowCC @Chris_Boardman @chrishoy @policescotland https://t.co/RBjTJ77OXk

@helenpidd @GoBikeGlasgow Totally pointless cycle lane. Same cars there. Every. Single. Day. There is a car park behind the building too. This requires you to move out into gas traffic who are trying to turn left in a few metres. Near White ... [more]

@helenpidd Howard Street in central Glasgow. A bike lane that goes against the flow of traffic. But it’s just a car park lane and taxi drop off. Yesterday there was more car than bike lane visible... If you ride it you’re forced into th ... [more]

Somehow cars do get squeezed in to the back streets of Mevagissey

@GoBikeGlasgow University Avenue this week : a @GlasgowCC cycle route @UofGlasgow what about the #vulnerableroaduser https://t.co/LdiKcc19HS

Can “security” vans stop where ever they like? This guy claims he can, while doing so he is blocking access to Gordon St counter-way cycle lane. @GlasgowCC @polscotrpu ?? https://t.co/EcNWYhbFIf

A50 bikeway impassable again today @LeicsCountyHall One day someone is going to get killed walking or cycling in the dual carriageway here, and I will dig out every time I reported this over the last 9 years! #secondclasscitizens #stopkil ... [more]

Curious layout on Sibson Road with signage about car storage.

There's an awful lot of cars in the traffic-free zone of the old town, Corfu Town

Obstructive car and van parking on Striven Gardens.

I thought I could get through on the left at Striven Gardens, but see #108225.

Car storage area near a sofa store.

Hey @networkrail I know you guys think you are special and can park anywhere, but you cant. This is a segregated bike lane that your vehicle is parked in, the SCW, Pollokshaws Road, one of the few in Glasgow. Get it moved. @GlasgowCC @AnnaL ... [more]

Parked cars, Istanbul - presumably someone somewhere has the keys.

The path from Fairfield Place arrives at Arrotshole Road, but the whole area is cluttered with parked vehicles and materials.

The path from Fairfield Place at a car yard, where some vehicles were backed further onto the path than others.

The cycle track from St Lawrence Park arrives in Falkland Drive, but someone has decided it makes a convenient parking space for his truck.

The access to NCN756 is vulnerable to blockage by van parking at Glamis Drive.

A dropped kerb in Tannahill Drive blocked by car parking, where the cycle route to Brancumhall joins the carriageway.

A dropped kerb on Alison Lea blocked by car parking.

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.

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

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.

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]

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

Grab all the space. This is the walkway between the cycle parking and the entrances to businesses on this business park.

The cycle lane up West Thomson Street.

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]

Absolutely perfect timing. @GoBikeGlasgow @UofGsustain @PeopleByresRoad #paintIsNotProtection https://t.co/LENi1rbIkA

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

"Car storage is free of charge: Tell your friends, Come back soon." (to our congested, polluted city) This city once organized a march against a 30p car parking charge. We found it quite a hostile place for cycling.

Walking to school is not always easy or safe when delivery vehicles park on the pavement near the school. #walktoSchool https://t.co/2YHUpMGiul

Electric car charging CMK.

Paint is not protection @PeopleByresRoad @UofGsustain https://t.co/BF102sqsik

Not all loading is essential*. Clerkenwell Rd needs kerb-protected bike tracks. Paint doesn’t work. *(London officially has the tastiest tap water in the world). https://t.co/xChTttRZEA

@morebikesplease @PeopleByresRoad @UofGsustain Here was two weeks ago. It's almost like there's a pattern...! Just shows the lack of consideration given to cycle infra that paint is even considered an option here. Anyone who uses the road r ... [more]

Car Park at Stockley Ponds on the Stockley Trail - accessed via Stockley Lane from A617 Mansfield Road

Car Park area

Dropped kerb in the corner spaces of this car park enables a short-cut to the market square instead of going all the way west to the Railway Road junction - as long as no cars are parked here!

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]

I measured the gap for pedestrians between the house and the dashed white line as 64cm here, the footway as 1.31 metres and the car space as 2.05 metres. Photo captured using the Measure app on an iPhone 7 https://support.apple.com/en-gb ... [more]

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

Another triumph for the all-powerful cycle lobby. Look at how much space they have managed to get away from the poor subjugated motorist. https://t.co/trskT70z6r

Coleridge West residents parking scheme in operation. Vehicles left here between 10am and 6pm require a fee-paid permit.

Coleridge West residents parking scheme in operation. Vehicles left here between 10am and 6pm require a fee-paid permit. It has de-cluttered the entrance to this valuable through route to the Clifton Road estate.

Antisocial parking on Old Kempshott Lane shared use path Location: , Worting (England, United Kingdom)

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

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

Coleridge Road Residents slow to adapt to the new parking markings.

@GoBikeGlasgow constant parking in front of the cycle path at bottom of Corrour Road in Newlands. Happening everyday. Double yellow lines and cycle path paint worn away https://t.co/ubCvvYCEfB

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

Charles Street where double yellow lines have been introduced on one side of the road, and resident parking bays on the other. This is an improved environment now for pedestrians (who have both footways cleared in principle) and cycling. Co ... [more]

Looks like a protected car parking space, procured, somehow, by the local resident's association. It'd be nice if you could do this for cycle parking too...

While most sensible places are getting rid of city centre car parking MK is throwing in the towel and building this 1,000 space multi-storey car storage and congestion generator.

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]

A car storage area in a motor traffic dominated Swansea. I later discovered this was created by: https://www.jeremydeller.org/

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

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]

There seems to be something in the way of the beautiful view along the Backs.

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

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.

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.

Crammed in!

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.
