Advocating For The Dutch Reach

Postby anaucklandpsyclist on Sat 24th Feb 3:56pm

Hi fellow cyclist enthusiasts, have you heard of the Dutch Reach? And before you ask, no not a Dutch Oven.....

Basically when you open your car door you use your opposing hand which forces you to turn your shoulder over and look behind you. I'm not quite sure of the statistics in New Zealand but dooring is a real hazard for cyclists and I for one know how frightening it can be. This can potentially save a lot of lives or at least injury so I think it's something really worth advocating for. All it requires is a little bit of education and what better place for it than the road code???
