Not again! A driver parking in the cycle lane on University Avenue, and across part of the junction mouth of Kelvin Way.

Kelvingrove Park being used as a car park by drivers. This is meant to be a car-free zone!

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.

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.

The University Avenue mandatory cycle lane chock-a-block with parked cars, and pavement parking on the opposite side where there is no cycle lane.

How fragile the motor traffic free status of Kelvin Way can seem.

The double yellow lines continue across the advisory pedestrian crossings and into the Restricted Parking Zone where double yellow lines are not meant to go. There are no markings or signs to say that the parking extending into the distance ... [more]

Car parking infrastructure being used as bike parking.

Cars parked in what little cycle lane there is in Byres Road.

Vehicles parked in the unmarked mandatory cycle lane (indicated only by red chips in the asphalt), and a 30mph sign marking (possibly) the end of the 20mph outside schools on Gibson Street and on the corner of University Avenue and Kelvin W ... [more]

New cycle parking stands, and an imposter.

More car parking in the University Avenue cycle lanes, across the Kelvin Way access.

A randomly pointing cycle route sign, no road markings, and a car parked on a marked tactile crossing.

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

"Park only in marked bays" on Kelvin Way.

Pavement parking outside the school gates in Dornal Avenue.

Several planters on Kelvin Way have been pushed aside, some of them are obstructing the cycleway. Fly parking is occurring without enforcement.

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.

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 first sign that the Benalder Street/Beith Street junction is going to be signalised, but no clues as to how the cycle track ending here will be tied into this. The dropped kerb and crossing studs have not deterred these selfish drive ... [more]

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.

Middleton Street is a rare 'Play Street' in Glasgow, although in reality it looks little different from dozens of other residential streets across the city. The western-most block of Middleton Street is not included in the scheme, and some ... [more]

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

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

I remain to be convinced that priorities have really changed.

There is a lack of a dropped kerb to allow access to the canal towpath at the end of the car park at Firhill. A temporary ramp has been provided, but this is possibly related to the construction work on the bridge to the Claypits nature res ... [more]

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.

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.

Another view of the mixed up bus stop/parking layby/cycle lane in Hawthorn Street, also seen in #170211.

Car parking at Lancefield Quay.

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

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.

@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

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]

Although armadillos have been provided on one side of this section of Provanmill Road, this side has been left much as before, with the cycle lane outside of the parking layby and now with a narrow buffer zone.

The start of the protected section of cycle lane on Cumbernauld Road. However, the motorists have decided to park in the bus layby instead.

Parking problems outside the shops.

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

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.

A new Nextbike station on Maryland Drive, Craigton, and a driver parked on double yellow lines across the entrance to the cycle track on Paisley Road West.

"Drivers remember - You are in a Restricted parking ZONE - Park only in marked bays" I'm not sure they are getting the message.

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]

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

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 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.

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

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.

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]

The doorzone pop-up cycle lane returns to the kerbside in Bilsland Drive, but the car parking continues towards the pinchpoint.

The start of the next section of pop-up cycle lane in Bilsland Drive. The centre line has been realigned.

No eastbound pop-up cycle lane on this part of Bilsland Drive, and a van parked in the westbound lane, despite the armadillos.

The pop-up cycle lane in Bilsland Drive at the junction with Shannon Street. The parking layby outside the shops is not wide enough for the vehicles parked there, leading to them spilling over into the cycle lane.

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.

Roadworks for the installation of the westbound cycle lane on Great Western Road.

@GlasgowCC @SustransScot That's great! But why the parking spots just down the road before the British Linen Building? They have not been there before, there is no need and it generates a dangerous bottleneck between opening car doors on th ... [more]

If you know where to look, there are now little asphalt ramps on each of the steps on the Charing Cross footbridge. But they could be widened and highlighted with paint. The dropped kerb is also obstructed by car parking. Combined wit ... [more]

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]

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

The bus stop on Lancefield Quay, at the popup cycle lane, is still in use so there is a gap in the cones, and as soon as I turned around to take a picture of the end of the popup cycle lane, someone was trying to park a car there, in the wa ... [more]

The residents have decided to park all over the cycleway.

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.

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]

The straight across access from the Berryknowes Road flats to Kingsland Drive (see also #112402) has been blocked off, including to cycles. The turning head is used for fly car parking.

Footway cycling on Langlands Road where the painted cycle lanes are blocked by parked cars.

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

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.

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

Motorists https://t.co/RlUC4vkbkj

@helenpidd Howard Street in central Glasgow. A bike lane that goes against the flow of traffic. But it’s just a car park lane and taxi drop off. Yesterday there was more car than bike lane visible... If you ride it you’re forced into th ... [more]

@cyclestreets Spean St, Glasgow - the pedestrian/cycle path is effectively just a residents' car park. @SustransScot @citycyclists @GoBikeGlasgow @LStreetsScot and while I am here > @StewartMcDonald @glasgowc @MMorganSNP @policescotland ... [more]

This fencing has been obstructing the access to the Sighthill motorway foot and cycle bridge for some time, even though the bridge is for now still open. The fencing appears to be being used to create nothing more than a contractor's parkin ... [more]

Obstructive car and van parking on Striven Gardens.

I thought I could get through on the left at Striven Gardens, but see #108225.

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]

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
