THE DOOR ZONE!

The DOOR ZONE!

bicyclists need to be careful... the best idea... PUT YOURSELF WHERE YOU ARE MOST SAFE
DO NOT RIDE IN THE DOOR ZONE!

in NYC a young woman was killed after clipping a car door and being tossed in traffic where she was then run over by a bus

GWADZILLA MENTION OF THE DOOR ZONE


sadly... even though the law is for car drivers to look back before they open their car doors... they seldom look back
and if the driver does look back
that look is a glance... a glance for something larger

who cares about the law and being in the right... if you are dead?

so... it is the responsibility of the cyclist to put themselves where they are most safe
which means... RIDE OUTSIDE OF THE DOORZONE
it is up to the cyclist to RIDE WHERE IT IS MOST SAFE

having been doored a few times myself back in the day, I never ever ride within door range anymore.

You still can't do much about the occasional dumbass who decides to get out of a car in one of the traffic lanes, though.
