Astonishing - there's a large car park but no cycle parking at all for Red Cross first aid courses at Lothbury House.

There's a marked parking space yet the driver still feels the need to use part of the cycleway for parking. Coundon cycleway. https://t.co/cWwAcSXssI

Van parking on the recently rebuild footway in University Avenue. There are parking bays in the road in front of the building the vans are parked at the rear of, in University Gardens.

A peak-hour bus lane on Great Western Road, during one of its operational periods.

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.

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.

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

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