Cyclist’s-point-of-view video of getting doored by a taxi

Whoa, how spooky is this screenshot I just took??

Watch the carnage (and the aftermath) here:

So for goodness’ sake be careful out there. I make a point of never going anywhere near any door.

Perhaps consult this helpful animated GIF from a few years back.

    Everyone was at fault. Just another reason I have a bell on my bike and wear a helmet.

    hence taxis should block the bike lane when dropping passengers (making sure to do a safe merge)

    Yes, that was a jaywalker not paying attention, and he was in the bike lane. Then he got doored, in the bike lane. The biker was not at fault for anything that happened, or almost didn’t happen.
