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!

Jamez Sassy, Boston?

Car doors etc.

I've been a courier for over 13 years, and in that time I HAVE NEVER seen a car door open further than it was intended to. That being true, smart riders DON'T RIDE WHERE THE POTENTIAL TO GET DOORED LIES! sure I got "doored" once but then I woke the hell up and left room for the OBVIOUS. Learn how to ride and beware of whats going on around you, it's pretty easy to ride 365 days a year WITHOUT GETTING DOORED, if your paying attention. I hope you post this letter because it might actually make someone question how/where they ride.
