A van parked not in a marked parking bay, but partly blocking access to the dropped kerb and the path through Yorkhill Park.

"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]

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.

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.

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]

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.

Car parking at Lancefield Quay.

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

@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]

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The shared-use footway on Archerhill Road crosses sides, from the wide footway to the narrow footway with a campervan parked on it, right at the end of the zig-zags for the toucan crossing and next to a junction.

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]

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.

Social distancing measures being abused for convenient van parking.

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]

Regular, not sporadic, enforcement of dbl yellows is needed on Spean St. This shared footway/cycle path is blocked daily by cars, SUVs, vans and lorries. 21 vehicles today. Zero space for people to social distance either. @GlasgowCC ple ... [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

Just after taking this a cyclist went by and narrowly avoided a car turning across the cycle path which was unable to see because of the van being 'parked' like this. Its genuinely no exaggeration to say that a cyclist will be seriously inj ... [more]

The residents have decided to park all over the cycleway.

No dropped kerb and a pavement parking problem at the new end of the path from Jessie Street to Prospecthill Circus.

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.

Glasgow’s counterflow bikes lanes, used by motor vehicles more than bicycles. Counterflow bike lanes in areas like this need barriers of some sort so that they stay open and free to allow cyclists safe and priority when moving around. htt ... [more]

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 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.

Footway cycleways routinely used for car parking at Leverndale Hospital, including more tyre tracks seen in the frost.

Footway cycleways routinely used for car parking at Leverndale Hospital.

Footway cycleways used for car parking at Leverndale Hospital.

Footway cycle markings at the main Leverndale Road roundabout, and a van driver parked on the footway cycleway across the road.

Cycle lanes in Dalmellington Road, but used for car parking.

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.

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

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
