occur when a driver or passenger opens his or her car door in the path of a
Councillor Adam Giambrone, Chair of the Toronto Cycling Committee, will launch
the campaign with representatives from the CAA, Toronto Parking Authority,
Mountain Equipment Co-op, City of Toronto and Toronto Police Service.

Cyclists not able to stop in time will either collide with the door or swerve
into the adjacent lane of traffic.
