obviously you've never been on a bicycle. don't think you should be posting

sudden movement of a car door opening is STILL going to be a shock. and
thankly there is a law on the cyclists side for just that. of course no one
intentionally opens their door into a biker, it is an accident, the driver
didn't think of looking, or whatever, but still yes, not jail no, but a fine
