Photo listing : car storage (problem)

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

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!)

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 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

CS7 Balham High Road this am. ⁦@TfL⁩ ⁦@MikeyCycling⁩ https://t.co/97d6COfvK8

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]

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

Just after taking this a cyclist went by and narrowly avoided a car turning across the cycle path which was unable to see because of the van being 'parked' like this. Its genuinely no exaggeration to say that a cyclist will be seriously inj ... [more]

The residents have decided to park all over the cycleway.

No dropped kerb and a pavement parking problem at the new end of the path from Jessie Street to Prospecthill Circus.

The direct route out of the Whitemoss Avenue underpass onto Whitemoss Road is blocked by car parking.

Car parking on the underpass cycle track at Falkland Drive.

@IsSaddleThereIs @firsthippy We have this stunning display on Westbourne Road in Sheffield. Still enough space for a car to put their wheels up on the kerb which has happened. https://t.co/HS8nsYDkGX

A dropped kerb has been installed at the end of the Garriochmill Way path, but the retention of the painted car parking bay across it causes it to frequently be blocked by car parking.

Aside from the cars parked in the cycle lane, the lane is approached through hatching which normally means don't drive or cycle here except in an emergency.

Glasgow’s counterflow bikes lanes, used by motor vehicles more than bicycles. Counterflow bike lanes in areas like this need barriers of some sort so that they stay open and free to allow cyclists safe and priority when moving around. htt ... [more]

Still a useless 'cycle lane' with cars parked in it. As they are allowed to do...single yellow line.

Here we go... problem is still happening, how long will it take the council to respond to a letter on the issue? 🤷🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️ @f0rmat @CyclingSurgeon @GoBikeGlasgow @SustransScot @GlasgowCC May I add before I got my ... [more]

A van parked partly on the footway and totally blocking a cycle lane on Shalesmoor.

The kind of dropped kerb that really needs nibbed to protect it from car parking. The kerb across the road is completely blocked. On this side of Holmfauldhead Place a shared-use footway has been created between this dropped kerb and the ... [more]

More cars parked in the Cardonald Place Road contraflow cycle lane. When I got to the traffic signals, I waited for two pedestrian phases and still the cycle phase did not happen.

Footway cycleways routinely used for car parking at Leverndale Hospital, including more tyre tracks seen in the frost.

Cycle lanes in Dalmellington Road, but used for car parking.

Pavement parking just after NCN7 and NCN75 turn into Rosshall Park. This is right next to a car park!

A private hire car parked on double yellow lines, in a contraflow cycle lane, and partly on the footway.

Car parking in the Langlands Road painted cycle lanes, and an old 'No Cycling' sign at this end of the path to Mallaig Road.

I wonder if the @PoliceScotland “safety camera” van beside their offices at Shawfield today can see the road for all those cars parked on double yellow lines & across a cycle lane? And whose cars might they be..? Let me guess. https://t ... [more]

There’s often plenty of space to make cycle tracks... it’s just taken up by car storage instead

There’s often plenty of space to make segregated cycleways... it’s just taken up by car storage instead.

The introduction of residents’ parking has meant that large amounts of commuter car parking has stopped, which is good; but the space should now be reclaimed by removing unused bays

The exit to this important cut through has very little visibility when cars are parked, with a white H line that is too short. Those car storage spaces should be removed, now that residents’ parking has reduced the demand in the area.

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.

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
