[Cyclelicious] New comment on Anti Dooring: Information for cyclists and motoris....

Ron has left a new comment on your post "Anti Dooring: Information for cyclists and motoris...":


That's an excellent anecdote about the bus driver, and it's something that should be included in every discussion about cyclists getting doored.

Usually, I think when people hear about the problem, it just reinforces their idea that bicycles are incompatible with cars, that we come out of nowhere. Many drivers refuse to accept that they should see cyclists in the door zone.

The idea that bus drivers are amused by door removal due to this willful obliviousness should help to alert people to their rearview responsibilities as they exit their cars.
Happy Trails,
