New Cycling Safety Signs a Possibility in Seattle

look out for bikesAccording to this post over at Bike Hugger, Seattle is considering a new street sign to raise awareness about the issue of cyclists getting doored.

If you don’t know what being “doored” means, it’s when you are riding close to cars on the street and someone unexpectantly kicks open their car door right in front of you. This has caused many injuries and deaths and it’s good to see Seattle considering this move to keep people safe.

Currently they’re doing a survey to find out if the sign correctly conveys the messages, so click here to check it out.

Have you ever been doored? What was the result? Was the blame placed correctly on the driver?
