0074/1821 February 2018Holden Ltd
This appears to be a facebook campaign by Holden, whether through ignorance or deliberately shifting blame onto other road users. You need to use a touch sensitive screen (it works on an iphone) and shows a cyclist about to hit a suddenly opened door, with text suggesting it's a 'mistake'. In fact, it's a very serious offence and has killed three cyclists in Melbourne alone in recent years. In two cases, the negligent driver opened the door and the cyclist was knocked under a passing truck. It is one of the most common causes of injury to urban riders.
