The Victorian Government has released a new anti ‘dooring’ campaign in an effort to reduce the number of bike riders who suffer from serious injury due to drivers and passengers opening their car doors without checking for cyclists. A bike rider may swerve out further into the road or collide with the car door, often with serious consequences.
In conjunction with the campaign new car stickers have been released by VicRoads which contain the simple message ‘look for bike riders’. The free sticker pack includes a set of four transparent stickers, a bumper sticker and an information card with a message for drivers and passengers about why they should be aware of the risk to cyclists.
Sticker packs are available from VicRoads Customer Service Centres or online from www.bookshop.vic.gov.au.
