Sample Letter to DOT Licensing/ Road Safety Officials

Consider adapting parts of this Sample Letter in support of requests to officials and experts to approve the far hand Dutch Reach for official traffic safety campaigns, driver education and licensing purposes.  The letter challenges government transportation experts and officials to examine the relative safety value of the near versus far hand methods for exiting vehicles. Ten reasons are given which set out the basis for finding the Dutch Reach to be the far safer habit, and a effective countermeasure for doorings. The Dutch Reach should therefore be adopted as an officially advised best practice.
