do you know how quickly i would knock out any fucker on a bike who did this to me
wow. the point is that it is illegal and very dangerous for drivers to open a door into the path of oncoming traffic, especially for cyclists. it’s one of the most deadly types of accidents. if you survive the initial impact, you are still often thrown onto the ground in the path of traffic behind you.
HOW TO OPEN YOUR CAR DOOR:
turn your body, & open it with your RIGHT HAND.
it forces you to look over your shoulder to see if a car, bike or pedestrian is coming, so you won’t a) damage your car or b) HURT OR KILL SOMEONE
Um YES, ABOVE.
Thank you for this. My first serious bike accident was due to this very thing and I ended up on the ground, totally disoriented and afraid I was about to get run over. I had a nasty contusion to my sternum, and hairline fractures that to this day still hurt.
Please take some time to open your doors with caution and care.
No, fuck that guy up there. You can KILL a bike rider by being irresponsible like that. Someone should fucking knock your ass out for making that statement.
