"Dooring" a cyclist

Car drivers/riders, please check behind you before you open a car door. You could seriously hurt a cyclist.

Bicycle drivers, please don't move through the door zone. Even though the car user is violating a law when they open a door in front of you, it's a risk you do not need to take, for your safety or to comply with laws. The law does not compel a cyclist to stay so far right as to be in the door zone, and it's not a good idea in any case.

  1. WWTS *what would Trump say?* In our new reality show of officially endorsed violence and bullying, I imagine our CIC (commander in cheat) would say, "Bicyclist totally at FAULT! Driver had to open door. He did not know that? Such a pretty woman is supposed to have eyes in the back of her head? SAD!!!!!"
