As a daily bike commuter i could say this would really help us all to be safe in the road. I think most of us have already experienced this scenario wherein a car door would just suddenly open whenever we pass cars in the road. 1st time it happened to me i was riding clipin. good thing i was able to turn away and unclip. thats why now i just use a flat pedals much easier to bail out.
I ring my bell when approaching at the driver side of the vehicle to get them aware even they will not open the door. Same approach in a Motorcycle, PUV and car congested roads during rush hours. Minsan kasi may mga motorsiklo at pedestrian na pasingit-singit sa gitna ng traffic. Mahirap nang masabitan. Kalimitan ikaw pa ang olats.
Kelangan din siguro maging nationalize na ang traffic management system natin at maging curriculum na sa lahat ng schools ang tungkol sa road use at traffic system.
haha I just experienced being stopped by a car door.
i was just pedaling casually and kinda made my way beside a parked car when its door suddenly opened. It hit my left lever and left a mark. I almost endoed but was able to recover when my crotch hit the toptube of the frame (no eggs were harmed). I check if the girl that opened the door is ok and i gave her a thumbs up sign.
I wonder how it would feel if my fingers were the one that got hit. Ouch
