End to “dooring” hazard?

Bicyclists are circulating links to this video, as if the roll-under door eliminates the hazard of riding close to parked vehicles. But, let’s take off the rose-colored glasses. Striking a car door isn’t the only hazard here.

Bicyclists can still collide with people getting out of the car, or who walk out from between parked vehicles, or with vehicles entering from driveways and cross streets.

So, don’t ride in the door zone even if the door can’t open into it. That applies with today’s sliding doors too.

Gotta love the Mozart piano concerto, though!
