Photo listing : car storage (problem)

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

A van driver has decided to block the footway and partly block the cycleway on Garscube Road, causing a pedestrian to have to walk around the van in the cycleway. A family group cycling towards the camera are not seen due to being hidden by ... [more]

The middle of Leominster

Car parking still taking place in the Provanmill Road cycle lane, despite the armadillos. Double yellow lines have not been provided, making it difficult for the council's enforcement officers to do anything.

The cycle lane down one side of Langdale Street is being used for car parking. The street can get quite busy with through traffic.

The cycle lane down one side of Langdale Street is being used for car parking. All the protection has been removed.

Langdale Street viewed from the Royston Road/Robroyston Road junction. The cycle lane down one side is being used for car parking.

Routine car storage on double-yellow lines on this dedicated cycle link around the Grafton Centre. Admittedly there’s enough space to pass (one way at a time) so you’d have to win that argument with an unsympathetic councillor. It’s p ... [more]

Car parking at Lancefield Quay.

[Image taken 17.6.21] Marygate car park, York. The barriers remain on the outside of the car park meaning that each day I pass through the gap is closed. This leads to people climbing over the fencing (see: #170084) and ad hoc use including ... [more]

The Hillington Park cycle route shared footway blocked by two parked cars in one of the unused entrances that interrupts the cycleway.

The Hillington Park cycle route shared footway blocked ahead, opposite a huge car storage facility. See also #170682.

A rather poor combination of cycle lane, bus stop and parking layby on Hawthorn Street. See also #171175.

Obstructive parking right outside our front door.

@GlasgowCC @YPLAC Howard Street cycle lane, and guess which road user was bawling abuse at me, for just being there apparently... https://t.co/NtJaA4WEXi

Pavement parking in Scotland Street, opposite a car park. The line segregation cycleway sign is wrong too, since the cycleway is to the left of the footway.

Part of Kenmure Street has been converted to cycles only to reduce through traffic, but motorists have decided to use both the walking and cycling spaces for motor vehicle parking.

Car parking on the footway cycle lane in Maxwell Drive. The cycle lane leads to a toucan crossing across St Andrew's Drive and is two-way.

Pavement parking in Cogan Road, outside a huge free car park at the retail park. The Advance Stop Line is the only concession to cycling on this road.

The Possil Road spur of the Garscube Road cycle track ends at Braid's Brae, but drivers are parking on the footway on both Possil Road,across the end of the cycle track, and on Baird's Brae where the beige path is supposed to be shared use, ... [more]

LTN bollards in Kendal enabling the creation of an extra parking space. So must be a good idea. @RantyHighwayman https://t.co/IU839N2IGo

Parking problems outside the shops.

Unlike other armadillo-protected cycle lanes around the city, there are no double yellow lines on Wallacewell Road, and fly parking is still a problem, particularly at gaps in the armadillo provision.

Car storage over hanging the cycle parking, since the bollard that stopped this got broken.

Car parking blocking access to front door.

[Image taken 12.5.21] Marygate car park, York. The driver of a small vehicle could park here and block the entry to/exit from the car park here see also: #168795. All images this location today: #168788 and links

Car parking in Laurieston all over the place, and some random cycle parking. I guess the streetlighting is nearing replacement.

Car parking in the rebuilt Laurieston area is perhaps not how the designers intended.

Class Parking Glasgow 🥰 https://t.co/pGRC0XOoWt

Car parking on the Spean Street shared footway.

Car parking in the Langlands Road cycle lane and footway. No waiting restrictions.

Lots of cars parked in the cycle lanes and footway on University Avenue.

Lots of cars parked in the cycle lanes and footway on University Avenue, including across the junction with Kelvin Way.

Lots of cars parked in the cycle lanes on University Avenue, including blocking some of the gaps for cycling to and from Kelvin Way.

@GlasgowCC Is this still a bike lane? Faded paint, totally unenforced, drivers treating it with contempt. St Andrew's Road. @GoBikeGlasgow https://t.co/1K0CTIfjrS

The Howard Street contraflow cycle lane now has some protection from orcas, but some motorists still find ways to block it. Enforcement action seems to be missing. The traffic signals have "except cycles" signs, but no prohibition or man ... [more]

Regular parking spot in the pop-up cycle lane in Bilsland Drive, and also further drainage issues.

Van parking obstructing the dropped kerb for the path connecting Plean Street to the NCN7 cycle path. The bollard is largely superfluous, given the width of the opening.

New pedestrian refuge installed outside a Coventry school, making it easier for children to cross a horrific bell mouth junction. It’s only been there a week and has already been commandeered for car parking. https://t.co/Yawd12pcs8

The Old Dumbarton Road cycle track isn't even finished and already it is attracting fly parking by motorists.

One of a number of piles of leaves in the Great Western Road pop-up cycle lane, and a goods vehicle being unloaded completely obstructing the cycle lane.

Poor design makes the path from Alderman Road to Kelso Street vulnerable to obstruction by car parking. There is a dropped kerb and faded green patch, but they are insufficient to prevent motorists blocking them. A build-out is required. ... [more]

The dropped kerb on the right (see #46778) is blocked by van parking, and the stopped up section of road is also covered with indiscriminate parking.

Hi @lynbrownmp I am one of your constituents and have been left homeless since a car drove into my house and into my brother’s bedroom. Can I speak with you and your office to discuss ASAP? https://t.co/DnMQYBUGGa

An Italian Job on Mill Road, plenty of outrageous driving through pedestrian areas in that movie! https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Italian_Job

"Parking here could cost a child's life" How alarming!

A van parked in the Clarence Drive cycle lane, another also on double yellow lines in the adjacent back lane.

A van parked on one side of Clarence Drive, and another visible ahead in the distance.

The southern entrance to Partick station is becoming a bit cluttered, and is being used for car parking, including over the path, which is also partially blocked by hire bikes.

No cycle parking here. But there is some at Great Shelford Memorial Hall about a 2 minute walk away #115644.

A large van trying to park on the footway comes within a foot of our front door. Noise and fumes come into the house. When I protest to the driver I get a load of verbal and aggro, but at least it ends amicably.

Car parking as usual in the cycle lane at the modal filter in Shakespeare Street.

Quality HGV parking in the cycle lane at Tesco!

I think this is a "park in marked bays only" Controlled Parking Zone. Either way, the van is parked obstructing the cycle cut-through to Hyndland Street and the bollard isn't helping.

Light segregation installed on the Colleges Route cycle lanes in Clarence Drive. Again, a break in the armadillos for the pedestrian crossing, and a car illegally parked just before they resume.

Coldham’s Lane crossing

Narrow Lane on Cambridge Retail Park, and there's a 5 mph sign. (You need to be pretty skilled to cycle as slow as that!)

Narrow cycle lane at Cambridge Retail park with a blue advisory sign that reads: Cyclists use cycle lane only

The narrow cycle lane markings on each side both suggest to ride away from the camera, but this is not a one-way section of the car park.

Cambridge Retail Park A new narrow cycle lane has been marked out, narrower than the space allocated to the footway. Narrow cycle lanes draw cyclists to the edge of the road where they are less visible to vehicles parking / unparking.

Three of four cars I saw in the woods at Cadder.

Incorrect signage and obstructive parking on the Burleigh Street contraflow cycle lane. Room for some cycle parking.

Car parking partly blocking the dropped kerb for the cycle path access at Fore Street, also partly on the school zig-zag markings.

The shared-use footway on Archerhill Road crosses sides, from the wide footway to the narrow footway with a campervan parked on it, right at the end of the zig-zags for the toucan crossing and next to a junction.

Car parking by a professional driver on the shared-use footway on Archerhill Road.

Car parking in the pop-up cycle lane on Great Western Road.

Look at this guy just enjoying the new cycle lane installed on Bilsland Drive in Glasgow. Who cares about cyclist safety? Not this guy! What a tw*t!! 🤬🤬🚴🏻‍♀️ https://t.co/RJQ3Ud3b9S

One for you @UrbanistTOC 😠 t.co/7ge2Ygk40g [Car parking in the cycle lane in Corkerhill Road]

Broken bollards and obstructive car parking in Clouston Street, where cycling through is permitted in the Traffic Regulation Order. The 'Keep Clear' road markings could do with being renewed.

Indiscriminate car parking in the Great Western Road pop-up cycle lane. Ideally, this section could be rebuilt, with the cycle lane going to the left of a new car parking layby where the cycle lane is.

The start of the Great Western Road cycle lane. The motorists have found somewhere else to park - on the footway.

Social distancing measures being abused for convenient van parking.

I'm not sure some people understand what the red and white barrier indicates. George Square east shut to all vehicular traffic, including cycles, and possibly also applies to SUVs too. The car was driven out over the fancy stone footway ... [more]

Regular, not sporadic, enforcement of dbl yellows is needed on Spean St. This shared footway/cycle path is blocked daily by cars, SUVs, vans and lorries. 21 vehicles today. Zero space for people to social distance either. @GlasgowCC ple ... [more]

Pakring alongside the park is not required for residents. This suggestion is part of Hackney Cycling Campaign's 'Vision for Hackney'.

Hi @GlasgowCC any chance we can have some enforcement on the corkerhill road cycle path. @UrbanistTOC do you know any others I could tag in this? https://t.co/bnVPgmHFqj

Red Cross Lane - taxis are waiting here, in addition to Addenbrooke's staff parking - parking urgently needs to be eliminated as part of the post-Covid19 recovery plan.

This car storage bay is no longer needed

This car storage bay should be removed, to improve visibility and access to the cycling/walking cut-through

This is why we need #ProtectionNotPaint This new cycle lane was painted yesterday but today there are 7 cars parked on it. Hopefully wands will be added like at the new cycle lane to #RoyalInfirmaryOfEdinburgh @edinhelp @NHS_Lothian ... [more]

@ERsafecycling @Visit_Whitelee @EastRenCouncil @EastRenPolice @polscotrpu This was it again today. Is anything going to be done about this before someone is killed? https://t.co/EHZ7FcgRfs
