As someone who was doored last week (I’m very lucky and am okay aside from some bad bruising and muscle trauma), how can I not share something so great and sensible?
Cyclists all want more bike lanes, but sometimes they are “door lanes”, right beside parked cars. This is often worse than no bike lane at all, since cars can speed beside the lane with impunity. Sometimes drivers open their doors without looking, and give out what some call the Door Prize, and other just call a dooring. TreeHugger has mentioned before that one way to avoid doing this is to actually open the door with your right hand; this means you have to twist your body to reach the door handle and you get a really good view.
