* Note: Dooring crash deaths, casualties & damages not just cyclists & bicycles
Doorings and dooring injuries and fatalities are not limited to bicyclists.
Motorcyclists, moped drivers & their passengers, skateboarders, rollerbladers, hover board & Segway users, buses, trucks, tractor trailers, street cars, and other passing vehicles, and even the heedless drivers or passengers themselves who step into on-coming traffic -- are regularly at risk of dooring or faulty exiting practices.
Both doored and dooring vehicles -- the offending doors, or the collided car, truck, bus, street car, etc. -- may often sustain substantial damage.
Victims' lives may be ended or compromised for days, months, years or a lifetime. Perpetrators themselves are subject to life disruptions, whether the inconvenience of dealing with minor crash consequences, or significant legal and civil liability, license suspension or loss, possible job loss, guilty conscience, and attendant emotional distress of their own.
