Look Before Opening

Saturday June 23, 2012 Written by adam

Having a car door open in front of your bike is a constant worry for most urban cyclists, but this nifty concept reminds drivers of a potential collision.

Look Before Opening is a simple sticker in the shape of a bike, which drivers can place on their inside window as a visual reminder to check for cyclists before opening a door. The stickers are available for free from the team at twenty4, a web consultancy firm with bases in Sydney and Melbourne. As well as specialising in web-based strategy and SEO, they're all keen cyclists. Interested motorists can email here for stickers.
