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.

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.

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

@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]

@GoBikeGlasgow University Avenue this week : a @GlasgowCC cycle route @UofGlasgow what about the #vulnerableroaduser https://t.co/LdiKcc19HS

Can “security” vans stop where ever they like? This guy claims he can, while doing so he is blocking access to Gordon St counter-way cycle lane. @GlasgowCC @polscotrpu ?? https://t.co/EcNWYhbFIf

@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]

Obstructive car and van parking on Striven Gardens.

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

Hey @networkrail I know you guys think you are special and can park anywhere, but you cant. This is a segregated bike lane that your vehicle is parked in, the SCW, Pollokshaws Road, one of the few in Glasgow. Get it moved. @GlasgowCC @AnnaL ... [more]

Obstructive pavement parking on the shared-use footway on Dalsholm Road between the Garscube Estate path and the Kelvin Walkway, forcing riders onto the crumbling carriageway. There is a free car park at the top of the hill in the backgroun ... [more]

Commercial van parking in the painted cycle lane on Port Dundas Road.

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]

Absolutely perfect timing. @GoBikeGlasgow @UofGsustain @PeopleByresRoad #paintIsNotProtection https://t.co/LENi1rbIkA

Paint is not protection @PeopleByresRoad @UofGsustain https://t.co/BF102sqsik

@morebikesplease @PeopleByresRoad @UofGsustain Here was two weeks ago. It's almost like there's a pattern...! Just shows the lack of consideration given to cycle infra that paint is even considered an option here. Anyone who uses the road r ... [more]

@RoyalMail when will you instruct your drivers that bike lanes and especially fully segregated ones are not for parking, especially when options are available? South West City Way segregated lane in Glasgow @GlasgowCC https://t.co/MZYDmZ8We ... [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

Look, I know it's shit infrastructure, just a bit of paint, but there's multistorey and surface car parking within a couple of hundred metres. I have to cycle against the flow of motorised traffic because you're a selfish twat. Thanks. ... [more]

Glasgow's joined up infra as it transitions from segregated to 'shared with pedestrians'. A pole and a parked van. Nice. https://t.co/I1zYIvWeLB

They're still at it @AnnaLangside @GoBikeGlasgow @GlasgowCC Really think the segregation needs to be more substantial https://t.co/08xkctm49Z

How am I supposed safely cycle up this street if cars are parked in the contraflow cycle lane, forcing me into on coming traffic? @GlasgowCC @AnnaLangside https://t.co/jcbx6GVDyv

Superb example of inappropriate pavement parking and encroachment onto a roundabout from the ever inconsiderate @ArnoldClark @ACHelpTeam It’s no wonder the concrete is sinking. @BadParkersUK https://t.co/TFDuYXL0qv

@GoBikeGlasgow constant parking in front of the cycle path at bottom of Corrour Road in Newlands. Happening everyday. Double yellow lines and cycle path paint worn away https://t.co/ubCvvYCEfB

Obstructive parking in Craigton Road, next to a partially empty ASDA car park.

Entitled driver's reaction to #carfreeday https://t.co/E6vXC6RfX1

If it's not for cars then it's alright to park across. Still no surfaced connection to NCN7.

Another vehicle parked on the widened shared-use footway in Dyke Road. See also #99500.

A mobile shop van parked on a footway buildout rather than using an empty parking space nearer the static shops. The bus stop is only served by the once-a-day service 709. This section of road used to have a cycle lane that followed t ... [more]

The usual obstructive parking encroaching the door-zone cycle lane and pavement parking in Alderman Road. Maybe it's time for the Alderman Road scheme to be ripped up and a cycleway built next to the footway and car parking placed next to t ... [more]

Another professional dog walker using the shared-use footway for van parking.

The dropped kerb required for cycling along the path in #100561, if it were not blocked by the parked van, is always obstructed by the lamppost. The 'No Through Road' needs an 'except cycles' sign if the path is to be considered to be pa ... [more]

Cars parked all over the footways of Crown Road South.

The narrow cycle lane on Kelso Street bridge with footway car parking. No waiting restrictions so the assumption must be that the council approves of this.

A cycle lane designed for car parking. Let's not pretend this is designed for cycling.

Car parking in the under construction cycle track in Archerhill Road, opposite the, erm, car parking layby.

Car parking on the under construction cycle track in Archerhill Road.

Why people cycling don’t use the provided infrastructure #7639. Approached a taxi driver blocking this same section earlier. Pointed out the solid white. He shrugged. ‘I’m dropping someone off’. Glasgow. https://t.co/j4xUZ4yLuT

This is what a painted bike lane means @PeopleByresRoad @GlasgowCC @glendalegaelic @walkcyclevote St Andrew's Drive https://t.co/xSJ0xYx8OH

The entrance to the path at Bredisholm Road is being used as a parking space.

A new cycle route under construction on Dyke Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. A shared footway is going in here, and some education of the locals on the purpose of the shared footway appears to be necessary.

A new shared footway on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. The purpose of the shared footway appears to be lost on the locals.

Glasgow's newest cycle project.

Professionally driven - NOT!

Vehicle parking on the footway appears to be a problem here. The shared use footway crosses to the other side of Summertown Road here, not that you'd notice.

What's that rule about not parking within so many metres of a junction? A car parked blocking entrance to the cycle track, so that it becomes easier to go around the other side of the traffic island to get to Lorne Street.

The usual obstruction of the Colleges Cycle Route by taxi drivers at Buchanan Bus Station.

No enforcement of the Argyle Street contraflow cycle lane.

The segregated cycle lane on Waterloo st at 9am today, right next to the @nextbikeUK stop. Reg: S6 DAT. #cycling #glasgow https://t.co/dBE1y4pG0o

Footway parking along Nithsdale Road on the climb up from Dumbreck station.

"Welcome to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital" if arriving on foot or by bike.

@CyclingGlasgow @GlasgowCC Why Is parking on cycle paths tolerated ????? @Hyndland #peoplemakeglasgow #not cyclist- friendly #carsmakeglasgow https://t.co/AoPQOl2jpm

When this area at Partick station was repaved, I thought it might be getting prepared for the installation of the large double decker bike racks, given the congestion on the existing cycle parking. But no, it has been getting used for car p ... [more]

Literally nowhere else to park! (*not)

Texting, engine running, not aware of those around her...

What is the point of advisory cycle lanes? Cumbernauld Rd today, both sides covered in parked cars @AnnaLangside @GlasgowCC @policescotland https://t.co/ze1547or7Z

Usual parking at Govan Rd cycle lane. On one side it's a door zone I'd never use, on the other they just park on it. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/OdEKkHaq0C

Nice little contra flow back on to PRW from NCN7... except it had a van parked in it whilst the driver ate lunch. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/dP5Az8iU80

Seeing this did not alleviate concerns about how Gorbals St residents will react to SCW stopping them parking here… #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/iPUnGlIl8o

Dropped kerb on Balvicar St is, not surprisingly, blocked again… time for double-yellows? #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/2Sp3Yg6J7D

#GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 Garrioch Road: lived here 5 years. Not been able to use full cycle path once b/c of constant parked cars ?? https://t.co/8EZw8tWlcb

[via email] Govan Rd/LorneSt - parking in the cycle lane gets even worse when the Rangers coaches are stacked up... #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/OhIzadCZ0D

Car parking in the Clarence Drive cycle lanes at rush-hour.

And here's a pic from today for #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 ... https://t.co/YsBAtyEAkm

And when I say 'ongoing'... here's a still from a video I took in 2013 #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/oRwxtE05FB

The ongoing parking issue at Leverndale Hospital... yes, that's the marked cycle lane. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/g1O9GbblMV

Cycle lane + d/yellow lines at the foot of busy Gilmore Hill. Ideal parking place #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/xd0YZo2dOx

I suppose they've left a bit of space today. Not normally the case. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/IiKNPrt128

@GoBikeGlasgow Today I think is #GlasgowVanInfraDay https://t.co/OvELykuKOC

Footway car parking outside new student accommodation, including reversing across the shared-use footway/cycleway. There is plenty available on-road car parking, and a cheap all-day car park next door (behind the trees).

Disappointing to see a business using cycling space to dump their goods on today @S4CGlasgow https://t.co/al31RX7tS8

...for a chat with this guy."Excuse me why are you changing your tyre in the bike lane?""Because otherwise it would be on the road".Riiiight https://t.co/rGvHLhsoky

A car blocking the dropped kerb at the top of the ramp from Hillpark Drive. The path itself is not particularly smooth.

A car parked over a dropped kerb that forms part of the Silverburn to Pollokshaws & Newlands cycle route.

Didn't realise the @GlasgowCC Aikenhead Rd cycle lane was suspended for Hampden events... https://t.co/rzvkdwGMyQ

A woman almost hit by car at this zebra this morning. Driver's view obstructed by vehicles parked on zigzag in middle of road @Glasgowcc >> https://t.co/83ZilN4JZZ

The narrow door-zone cycle lane swerves into the back of some parked cars. On the other side of the road, there's a car parked partly in the cycle lane, partly on the footway.

Cars being parked on the Kelvin Walkway and West City Way, because someone has removed some of the bollards that mark the limit of the car park.

Since my last visit, two dropped kerbs have been installed, but one of them is completely blocked by a parked car.

WCW, at least he only blocked half of the cycle lane https://t.co/Mj7W9Fqq3P

A motorist that doesn't understand how the footway works. A bus stop bypass with zebra crossing.

Another scheme where the designer has failed to take account of how vehicles will be parked, given that there is unlikely to ever be any parking enforcement around here. Putting in wide footways with big stone kerbs is a waste of money in t ... [more]

Cars parked blocking a dropped kerb, leaving only just enough room for a standard bike to squeeze through.

Van driver parked blocking dropped kerb seen in #86106.

Just a normal day on the Howard St contraflow cycle lane. Curiously, although "except cycles" signs have been provided on the traffic signals, there are no mandatory left turn signs.

Appaling parking on the James St cycle path/shared pavement by one of @GlasgowCC councillors #shameshame https://t.co/VxouFEKAYO

Hey @GlasgowCC, amy chance you could do some enforcement of the "No Loading" zone on the @swcw24 ? https://t.co/qIVc6YwNPH

They were at it again today. Pavement parking. None of the 4 Anderston/City cllrs ever did bother replying 1st time https://t.co/qSrezBnk90

It's middle of the path point-makers like this who make cyclists so angry about taxi drivers https://t.co/E5nSiBxCNy

@Byron_Silver @carsickglasgow @S4CGlasgow spotted this eejit this morning https://t.co/OuoKrh1Lxi

Torrisdale St segregated cycle lane blocked as per. @carsickglasgow @S4CGlasgow https://t.co/kZM3Yic1bL

South West City Way blocker of the day. https://t.co/YN7IOacssw

A car parked on NCN75.

More waste of paint by Glasgow City Council. The dual use of tin box storage may impress @Bob_Gunderson however... https://t.co/27FfCCrs0W

If only police did follow this van... @GlasgowUni @carsickglasgow https://t.co/mrVSsWn7Yi

@ErnieMarples @magnatom @FMcAveety Presumably this "cycle lane" on Govan Rd is also included in km total #pointless https://t.co/ZbbBvLyXlq

@GlasgowCC @SandraWhiteSNP @carsickglasgow Double whammy of cycle lane (SWCW) and pavement parking today. https://t.co/wUzUaKvBq7
