A pavement parked van is obstructing the path of a disabled man on a mobility scooter. We spoke to the driver and they finally shifted the van to give enough space, reluctantly, after several minutes of waiting. Lots of people were squee ... [more]

Whilst cycling this way today, we had the same pavement parking as this example (from last December). Forcing people walking into the road with 2 clear nearby legal spaces.

Shockingly good pavement with zero cars parked on it. Hard to believe that this exists.

Van blocking contraflow cycle lane on Bateman Street. A daily occurrence for much of the year - certainly this last week, and most summers from July to October. There are, of course, parking spaces marked and vacant just across the road, b ... [more]

I wonder what the city council policy is on footway parking. Here, two of their vans pull up onto the footway in Cherry Hinton while their drivers buy themselves a sandwich. There is a car park immediately opposite, another 50m away and leg ... [more]

Thanks, mate :-/

The footway on the western side of Cavendish Road is the only one in the area that does not have motor vehicles parked across it.

Another delivery to la Maison du Steak do a delivery and blocking road users view of the lights. Noitce the space to the left of the photo, off road, nice and safe for all. Here's another example of this happening. http://cambridge.c ... [more]

Pavement with segregated use on Green End Road - see worn out little blue sign on the lamp post in the background. Two cyclists signing the petition.

See clip at This is breaking the law but also recognised as being very dangerous, mainly as it's a contraflow cyclelane. There are schools nearby and a lot of children use this to get to and fro ... [more]

End of foot and cycleway - no, it is not. The correct sign wood by white pedestrians on blue background. At other similar locations the council uses the equally wrong and even more annoying "Cyclists Dismount", e.g. #48247. At least the Cou ... [more]

A litany of parking blocking the pavement and forcing people to walk in the road.

See clip at Okay, arguably there COULD be an exclusion here under the '88 RTA. But it's unlikely and not as if there are better places close by. Also, I'm not sure if any of these exclusions apply if on a cros ... [more]

Yet again, deliveries to Costa Coffee park illegally on the pavement. Not only is this illegal, but look how dangerous it is. The lights for straight on are completely blocked from view for people driving and riding. There's a chance that t ... [more]

Yet more pavement parking. This time it's xF60 TSV from This is becoming a regular occurance. Driving onto the pavement breaks the same law as cycling on a pavement, and is invariably a lot more dangerous. Not only that, ... [more]

See clip at I'm riding along a road made single width by parked cars. I've already established my position on the right side of the road having passed many vehicles. A car approaches from the other end of the ... [more]

W898 NBJ Parked in Cyclelane and on Pavement at Lights. I saw this car here 2 hours earlier as well. I would suggest that it hadn't moved in those 2 hours.

Pavement parking Downing St

Perhaps Costa Coffee would like to contribute to the estimated £300m UK wide bill for pavement repairs caused by parked vehicles? Also, it ought to be noted that this location has "no room for a cyclelane", although it has enough space ... [more]

See clip at Parking on the pavement requires the driver to drive on the pavement (or footway). This breaks the same law as people cycling on the footway. Double-yellow lines also go further than just the road, ... [more]

See clip at I just don't get this. Why park on the pavement when the road has no parking restrictions at all? Is it just part of the car-dominated zombie thought process "must get out of the road, must get out ... [more]

See clip at Not only does this block the pavement forcing pedestrians into the cyclepath, but it halves the width of the cyclepath due to the "door zone". ... [more]


Guided bus access route for Addenbrookes Hospital by the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology. There is also a rather narrow shared use pavement on Guided Busway's southern fringe.

Inconsiderate parking on the cycle way near a lamp post at double yellow line.

Quite a lot of cyclists turn right onto the footway between Regents Terrace and Regent Street. There would actually be space for a segregated lane, but the junction at the end would be problematic.

Maybe pedestrians need their own campaign...? The elderly will have to wheel up and down the kerb to get to the care home...

Had a raised speed table been installed, pedestrians on the opposite side (natural line to the reception of the care home) would have received a better deal... Ref #19486 and #19487.

New red-mac on the pavement on Chesterton Road (CB4 1AS), between Chesterton Hall Crescent and George Street. This has been used by generations of school children to reach a traffic light regulated crossing.

Pavement parking in a new development.

Cars obstructing the MCL on East Road (near roundabout) force bicycles onto the pavement (illegal, could cost £35 on the spot) as cars invade MCL.

¿ What is it with cycle ways in Cambridge that motorists confuse them with car parks ?

Virtually every car on Occupation Road is illegally parked, making it difficult for pedestrians to use the pavement. Many vehicles on the left are from the car sales places and are being sold on the highway, against a specific City Council ... [more]
