Save Cyclists Souls , avoid Dooring with the Dutch Reach

Use your far hand when opening car door

Dooring is a traffic collision in which a cyclist is struck by a car door.

The width of the door zone in which this can happen varies, depending upon the model of car one is passing.

Opening the car door with far hand should become a habit every single driver.

Once you park your car along the road, turn around and open the door with far hand. Thereby you turn your torso and head to the back and get a chance to see cyclist or motorcyclist who  could crash with your door, or perhaps another vehicle that will rip off the door, and possibly hurt you.
