I was really pleased to see this advertising campaign on Crown Street today, especially when you consider the bicycle lanes along this street. When there is loads of traffic there really is nowhere to go to get out of the way of an open door.
Only 2 weeks ago my mates Emily and Annabel were wiped out by a driver that opened his door in front of them. Luckily they weren’t too badly hurt, it does happen quite frequently. It happened to a friend a couple of years ago and that incident was not pretty. The car door was bent backwards, the bike was totaled, and my mate suffered a broken wrist and collarbone.
So Yay! Sydney of City, the more awareness drivers receive about cyclists the better!
