Cars are driving and parking on cycle lane

Reported in the Road Markings - Worn/Faded category anonymously at 11:51, Thu 29 August 2019

Cars are using the cycle lane on this stretch of road as a car park and parking their vehicles there. This is forcing people and children to cycle on the main road. Could the area be assessed for additional signage or yellow lines? Cars doing this have been challenged by passers by who state 'There are never any traffic wardens here so who cares.'
