Cyclists and Boarders Know! Cardoors are a Deathtraps! When you hear a "Click" get out of the way fast! Watch Out! Always look inside parked cars as you pass! Look for faces in the side mirrors! Assume every door you pass will suddenly be thrown open! Taxi cab passengers are the worst! Be extra careful around taxis! Take the Lane! Keep riding! Don't be afraid, be aware! We pay taxes and have the same rights to operate on the streets! Don't give up the fight! You car drivers out there Remember to check your mirrors! Then check again just before you open your door! Cyclists and Boarders can appear faster than you might think! Always assume a cyclists or boarder is about to pass your door! Lets work together! Share the streets! We can prevent these types of accidents! An injury to one is an injury to all!

Anonymous Craigslist post, San Francisco

The following is an anonymous response to a posting I made yesterday on Craigslist (SF, Politics discussion forum) regarding the danger Car Doors pose to Cyclists. Thank goodness the majority of car drivers don't think the same way this "Liberal" does. —Jerry

i dig bikes, they don't burn gasoline and they are quiet


here in SF
bike riders don't follow the rules of traffic game...jumping lights, changing lanes or turning
without signalling...yadayada

here's my warning...if you are not following the rules of the road and you
get in my way...
if you are riding and I am opening my car door

bike riders beware
even liberals have had enough

follow the rules of the road
consider yourself fair game...
