Car parking at the Kelvin Way junction still an on-going problem.

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 delivery van parked on the recently rebuilt footway, and two more vans parked further along. This is what happens when the roadway is designed without any provision for loading bays.

Van and car parking on the (presumably shared use) footway connecting the Craighall Road toucan crossing to the Forth & Clyde Canal at Speirs Wharf. The car is also blocking a dropped kerb (the dropped kerb can be seen better in #188011).

Parking across a cycle track traffic filter. This area is a Controlled Parking Zone "park in marked bays only".

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

No sooner had the van driver driven off from his position in the University Avenue cycle lane (see #182578), than a taxi driver came and parked there instead. The coach is parked on the other side of the road, where there is no cycle lane. … [more]

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 … [more]

Deep sigh. No, this is not acceptable. #SouthWestCityWay https://t.co/6KkLjsPSht

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

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

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 … [more]

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 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.

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

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.

The cycle lane down one side of Langdale Street is being used for car parking. All the protection has been removed.

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.

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.

@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 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]

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 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

@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 … [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.

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.

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.

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.
