Anti-Dooring Campaigns Around the Globe

Resources is under development, as you can see... For starters I will be posting what links I've found of prior and current efforts to curb this scourge from cities around the world. If you know of others, please try sending me info on them via my email at Contacts. Thanks!

A great place to start is Toronto which had its first anti-dooring campaign in 2005 and appears to have originated the term "Door Prize" for the tragic fact of being killed by a negligently opened car door. There among many other concerned voices, Lloyd Alter has been perhaps the most articulate and passionate of advocates focused on dooring prevention, and who has for years promoted the - as yet un-monikered - reach method as part of the solution.
