Reminder to take care when opening car doors
Research reveals that one of the main causes of cyclists’ crashes continues to be people opening car doors in their path. Brent Ferigo, Cycle Planning Officer at Christchurch City Council, said that it causes the highest number of on-road cycle incidents reported to the Council.
The re-launch of the Stop Look Cyclist campaign incorporates a number of integrated activities aimed at drivers and passengers, including wide distribution of the stickers, and new advertising making drivers more aware of cyclists.
The Stop Look Cyclist stickers are available from bike shops, gyms, swimming pools, libraries and City Council offices and service centres. They can also be obtained by emailing email@example.com.
The stickers come in two sizes – a large sticker for the vehicle’s rear window, visible to the driver in the car behind, and smaller stickers for the inside of car doors (for example near the door handle) as a reminder to look before opening the door.
