[Image taken 19.1.22] Aldi, Water Lane, York. [NOTE: No streetview at this location.] This is the access to/from the supermarket for cyclists, peds, mobility scooters and wheelchair users. But if - as is not uncommon - all the parent and ch ... [more]

Just what I needed, matey sleeping in the cycle lane on Garscube Road https://t.co/jhW5lhrWNe

Not a care in the world about any inconvenience their parking may cause.

Don't stand a chance do we 🙄🙄 @nigelbagshaw https://t.co/8AzJDcwcsC

A parked van blocking access to the new cycleway on Benalder Street.

"Park only in marked bays" on Kelvin Way.

Pavement parking outside the school gates in Dornal Avenue.

Double yellow lines have returned to Hamilton Drive, but without enforcement they are being ignored by drivers. This is a "park only in marked bays" area, as seen in #167952.

A council van has been parked on the footway at the entrance to the Kelvingrove Art Gallery car park, obstructing families trying to walk past. The footway also forms part of the West City Way cycleway, since the adjacent carriageway is one ... [more]

The incomplete Old Dumbarton Road cycleway is unusable for cycling, but is being used for parking vans.

A van parked in the Lancefield Quay armadillo-protected cycle lane, forcing cyclists to choose between going out into the road to pass, or to mount the footway. Even in fairly light traffic conditions, some chose the latter. The parking tic ... [more]

Why? Why would you not just park your van in the space? #ComistonRoad https://t.co/Wndys7gWOX

Cars being parked on the footway of Garscube Road, rather than in the place indicated by a single yellow line on the road. Not helped by a waiting peak restrictions sign being next to the double yellow lines.

Waitrose, Foss Islands Road, York. [Note: No street view at this location.] The company has created space for two e-charging bays but can't find room for more cycle parking. Hypocrisy. Other images from Waitrose and other locations today: # ... [more]

Car parking on the "Keep Clear" markings and across what the traffic order said was legal to cycle through (although it has never been properly signed) on the traffic filter.

The sign on the gate says "No Parking" but there is no enforcement. The footway forms the link between the partly installed toucan crossing across Craighall Road and the canal path.

A van driver parked in the protected cycle lane and on the footway, while pedestrians try to get by.

New development seemingly designed with on footway motor vehicle storage.

On the left a Loading Bay, and ahead some pavement parking loading activity. See also #173732.

There are some tightly spaced cycle parking stands next to the entrance door, in addition to those in #173563, and some bikes were visible inside the doorway. Despite there being parking spaces on the opposite side of the road, this driv ... [more]

Broken glass and a parked van blocking the contraflow cycle lane in Cleland Street. The lane and path to the left over to Gorbals Street was also blocked by parked motor vehicles.

The Nicholson Street cycle track exists to provide a safe link between Norfolk Court and the South Portland Street Suspension Bridge, but is being abused by motorists. It has lost its signs and the markings are somewhat faded.

The Nicholson Street cycle track has lost its signs, has faded markings, and is being used for car and van parking, and is being illegally driven through. Just next to the Sheriff Court! The link was put in to provide a safe link between ... [more]

The eastern end of the Herbertson Street cycle track suffers from a severe fly parking problem, with cars and vans parked on the footway as well as over the dropped kerb for exiting the cycle track.

Parked van blocking dropped kerb, and obstructing people cycling. No attempt to discourage parking here. Failure to reinstate cycleway markings after roadworks.

Ah, perfect stop for a lunch break… 🙄 https://t.co/sTKaIu3BBh

A view of the fly parking at Charing Cross, seen from the footbridge.

Van parking obstructing the path between Renfrew Street and St Georges Road at Charing Cross.

Car parking on the end of the Sauchiehall Street cycleway at Charing Cross.

Dock Street Clydebank, NCN 7 where it crosses a street, I wonder if it could be made more clear the path crosses here 🤔 Sight lines a major issue here with parked cars, for a path used by all age groups walk/wheeling with heavy vehicl ... [more]

A parked van in the cycle lane beyond the junction.

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 on the Spean Street shared footway.

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

Cycle lanes being used for car parking, without any waiting restrictions. Designed for failure.

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
