The most recent photos are listed first. See also photomap view.

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

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]

@RoyalMail when will you instruct your drivers that bike lanes and especially fully segregated ones are not for parking, especially when options are available? South West City Way segregated lane in Glasgow @GlasgowCC https://t.co/MZYDmZ8We ... [more]

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

@cyclestreets @livingstreets #pavementparking on National Cycle Network route 224, Chawton Park Road, Alton, Hampshire: time 09:43, Monday 14th January. Wonder if incidents like this account for woefully low levels of #cycling in #Alto ... [more]

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

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

@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.

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

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]

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]

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]

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.

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

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

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

Well here's a new one on me. Cars parked all over the pavement, so a *pedestrian* lane painted *in the road*. #Brighton https://t.co/YSQnwBfmlH

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

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.

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.

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.

The usual obstruction of the Colleges Cycle Route by taxi drivers at Buchanan Bus Station.

car parked over dropped kerb on NCN 23, Hatch Warren Way Location: , Cliddesden (England, United Kingdom) The NCN23 along the Hatch Warren Way is a popular place to park cars

Pavements are for parking in Hampstead https://t.co/R7rWHUTqVR

No enforcement of the Argyle Street contraflow cycle lane.

The segregated cycle lane on Waterloo st at 9am today, right next to the @nextbikeUK stop. Reg: S6 DAT. #cycling #glasgow https://t.co/dBE1y4pG0o

Not an ideal place to unload!

Motor vehicles stored right across the footway in Great Eastern Street.

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.

@CyclingGlasgow @GlasgowCC Why Is parking on cycle paths tolerated ????? @Hyndland #peoplemakeglasgow #not cyclist- friendly #carsmakeglasgow https://t.co/AoPQOl2jpm

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

Parking like this makes Puffles want to bring back the old tow-away scheme

Nothing to stop cars blocking this dropped kerb. Needs a double yellow or white H marking.

Van parked over both the shared use path and start of the mandatory cycle lane, A329 Reading Road, Wokingham Location: , Winnersh (England, United Kingdom)

car parked on shared use path alongside A329 Reading Road, Wokingham Location: , Winnersh (England, United Kingdom) cycle lanes and shared use path on both sides

bus stop and car parked on shared use path, Reading Road A329, Wokingham Location: , Winnersh (England, United Kingdom)

"The Courtyard" which sounds nice is actually more of a motor vehicle storage facility. The only cycle parking is against the walls.

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

So my first trip up the protected cycleway on Leith Walk was predictably enjoyable https://t.co/1OKNi69gCn

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

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'

No sign of any cycle parking on this new development.

Usual parking at Govan Rd cycle lane. On one side it's a door zone I'd never use, on the other they just park on it. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/OdEKkHaq0C

Nice little contra flow back on to PRW from NCN7... except it had a van parked in it whilst the driver ate lunch. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/dP5Az8iU80

Seeing this did not alleviate concerns about how Gorbals St residents will react to SCW stopping them parking here… #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/iPUnGlIl8o

Dropped kerb on Balvicar St is, not surprisingly, blocked again… time for double-yellows? #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/2Sp3Yg6J7D

#GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 Garrioch Road: lived here 5 years. Not been able to use full cycle path once b/c of constant parked cars ?? https://t.co/8EZw8tWlcb

[via email] Govan Rd/LorneSt - parking in the cycle lane gets even worse when the Rangers coaches are stacked up... #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/OhIzadCZ0D

Car parking in the Clarence Drive cycle lanes at rush-hour.

And here's a pic from today for #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 ... https://t.co/YsBAtyEAkm

And when I say 'ongoing'... here's a still from a video I took in 2013 #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/oRwxtE05FB

The ongoing parking issue at Leverndale Hospital... yes, that's the marked cycle lane. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/g1O9GbblMV

Cycle lane + d/yellow lines at the foot of busy Gilmore Hill. Ideal parking place #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/xd0YZo2dOx
