Catch the Cyclist...

A new campaign in the city of Frederiksberg, Denmark, reminding car drivers to watch out for bikes when they open their car doors.

The slogan:
"Catch the Cyclist... with your eyes, not your door."

Over half a million daily bike commuters and I suppose some get caught by doors. Never seen it happen, never had it happen to me, but still it's good with these campaigns.

The good thing is that car drivers in Copenhagen are cyclists, too, so there is generally a good, healthy symbiosis between bikes and cars.

Thanks to Kristoffer & Laura on Flickr.com for this great photo.
