I measured the gap for pedestrians between the house and the dashed white line as 64cm here, the footway as 1.31 metres and the car space as 2.05 metres. Photo captured using the Measure app on an iPhone 7 https://support.apple.com/en-gb ... [more]

There seems to be something in the way of the beautiful view along the Backs.

Crammed in!

Metcalfe Road

Metcalfe Road

Not an ideal place to unload!

Motor vehicles stored right across the footway in Great Eastern Street.

Parking like this makes Puffles want to bring back the old tow-away scheme

"The Courtyard" which sounds nice is actually more of a motor vehicle storage facility. The only cycle parking is against the walls.

'Bus / cycle lane'

A car parked in a parking bay marked in the 'bus / cycle lane'. Really.

Cars parked on the shared-use pavement with double-yellow lines. Typical.

Need for cycle parking on this street.

Typical entitled motorist blocking the pavement.

Chaotic, dangerous environment, on Norfolk Street - should be a ban on parking around the school

Is replacement of the car park with a new car park really the best use of space here? Why not house people, and reduce car dependency, instead?

Car parking here needs to be stopped - the two left vehicles are on the pavement. This means that the intended route for cycles, behind the bollards, doesn't work.

This entrance to the Friends Meeting House nicely doubles as motor vehicle storage.

Use of this very tight space for 8-hour parking bays is frankly ridiculous

Cycling and walking here much easier when vehicles not parked - the latter should be banned

New development - car left untidily on the street, a sign of things to come

Repainting pavement parking lines: the County Council's annual reminder that pedestrians and wheelchair users are second-class citizens.

Look how much safer things are here, how much more attractive, and how much space there is (e.g. for cycle parking, trees, play spaces) without the car storage

The sheer nerve of some van drivers! @camcycle @CambridgeCops https://t.co/HwCkYffATY

This car park is only used lightly - it would be best to remove it and turn it into a productive use of space - housing

Pavement car storage in Romsey creates an exclusionary environment for wheelchair users.

When cars park right against the cycle parking that makes access through our front door rather awkward - when we're bring our bikes in or out. It doesn't happen very often - but this car hasn't moved for about four days. Bikes have to be ... [more]

It's about time that Regent Terrace had parking banned entirely; this is a terrible pedestrian environment and is a very busy cycle route

West Cambridge ped and cycle path. Cars not supposed to be here at all. https://t.co/iz5oimRFzO

Station access road already seeing freebie parking

Parker's Piece disgustingly being used as a car park, purely as a perk for ice rink staff, not for brief delivery reasons

Cllrs to consider if to spend £1650 on paint to address this #BadlyParkedBike hotspot p51 https://t.co/WvtHESCmzx https://t.co/9sCB3UZJ62

Completely free city centre parking to remain in York Street and Ainsworth Street, at a time when millions of pounds to be spent on bus lanes to deter traffic entering the city. Joined-up thinking?

Trees that say NO PARKING This was inevitable and predicted by #64220.

Car parking on Sundays - people who have found a freebie rather than using the car parks - causes poor pedestrian environment and unnecessary conflict with cycles

Thanks, mate :-/

Regent Terrace needs to have a parking ban all the time - much better pedestrian environment when no cars present.

Congestion on Norfolk Street - a hazardous environment caused by the amount of car storage

Tesco still driving onto the pavement illegally in this area

This car park is almost always unused - surely there are better uses of space

It is not easy to walk up this side of Cavendish Road without skimming the wing mirrors and hedges.

Parking, used by commuters, needs to be removed here on what is now a major cycle route

Proof that free on-street car parking is massively under-valued

Parking here monopolising the space, despite being an important cycle route

Just room to squeeze thru on foot on this private development.

Just enough room to squeeze through on foot.

Motor vehicles blatantly block the whole footway in this private development.

Poor cycling conditions on Lensfield Road due to the pay and display parking. Such parking is completely inappropriate for the ring road.

Motor vehicles almost totally blocking the footway in Charles Street.

Car-dominated new development

Taxi blocking the footway - no driver present.

Pedestrians are forced to step onto Mill Road to get passed the cars parked at this hairdressers. See #61221.

Footway completely blocked by a motor vehicle at this new hairdresser. I have emailed a copy of this photo to them and am awaiting a response. They responded only an hour later, apologising and promising to make sure it won't happen a ... [more]

Lots of space for a cycleway on Lensfield Road - a classic case of a road that looks narrow when parking is present, but is actually quite wide

The parking on the right causes traffic, particularly buses, to queue and be delayed - but the street flows better when no vehicles are present

This location would be much safer without the car parking on this blind corner.

Where's the cycle parking? Trumpington Meadows is so close to the busway, but it's a typically car-oriented development, alas.

Motor vehicles stored on the footway - this is therefore a failed development.

Damage to verge from residential car parking. This resident has added plastic matting to stop their car sinking. Staggering. This is public property.

Bus passengers stuck for 3 minutes because of this bargain car parking in an area of high demand for roadspace.

50 people stuck in a bus all because we can't possibly take away parking to make cycling and public transport better.

The time has come to end public storage of these dinosaurs on this section of highway. There is a multi-storey storage facility for them nearby so there really is little excuse.
