DOORED? FEAR IT? TEACH the REACH! TELL EVERYONE! IT'S MUCH SAFER!
>> Reach, Swivel, Look out & back, Open slowly. <<
Drivers & passengers each use far hand to open car door.
Reach across for the door handle.
Forced to Swivel, you automatically Look out, at mirror & easily back for bikes & traffic.
Then Open slowly to exit while remaining vigilant.
Dutch kids learn it from parents & in school.
It’s taught in drivers’ ed, and required to pass their driving test.
It's been Dutch commonsense for 50 years. Time we thought so too!
