The Door Prize

Toronto is not historically a bicycle friendly city, but in the last few years has been trying hard to change, pointing out that switching to bikes reduces congestion, greenhouse gas emissions and obesity. Unfortunately the drivers are not, and the Door Prize- a driver getting out of a parked car and opening the door in your face- is very common. Consequently the City of Toronto has started an awareness campaign, including stickers to put on your side mirror saying "watch for bikes". While we can think of better places for bigger stickers (if they are looking at the sticker they already have got the message) it's a start. Treehugger is interested in hearing what other places do about this problem. ::City of Toronto
