Please look before opening your car door.

Bus drivers I know talk about "catching a door" - though usually the bus is barely scratched. Legend tells of a mythical bus driver in Los Angeles who paints little doors on his bus, kind of like enemy kills on a fighter jet plane.

Via Urban Velo.

It's important for cyclists to be always aware, too. Don't ride so close as to be in the reach of a door. Don't rely on drivers to watch for you. They won't.

FWIW, my dad tells me a story of getting doored many, many years ago. He warned me of it. I never forget.
I love how the subject unceremoniously blows that stop sign half way through. Adds to the realism. :P
