My worst fears have come true: http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2008/09/18/2367847.htm
Is it not just the least bit terrifying how accidents like these are just waiting to happen?
And hearing people getting “car-doored” is a once-a-month thing here. My friend was the latest victim – he found the door of a pickup smack in front of him one second before he ran into it, flipped over the door, and landed on the asphalt of the tram tracks. The driver of the pickup was apologetic, but I don’t think he is entirely to blame – the roads ought to be better managed in the first place.
Maybe cyclists should be protesting nude outside Flinders Street Station next.
