It’s amazing we don’t see more of these…

Just about any driver that parks on the shoulder of Highway 101 along the Oregon Coast should always look in their rear view mirror before they even dare to open their car door. As you can see from the top picture, the driver of this Volkswagen has her wheels maybe eight to twelve inches off the fog line so when she opened her door, it caught the right side of a southbound vehicle with Zeke Dotson at the wheel. Zeke’s a former Mayor of Yachats. He managed to bring his car to a stop. Fortunately both he and his wife weren’t hurt. A little shook up, but that’s about all.

No word on who got the ticket. But let it be a lesson that just because you pull off the road, don’t jump to the conclusion you can open your door like you’re in a parking lot. Not only can you snag a car with it, a line of bicyclists, who have to ride around you, could be killed if they got trapped between your suddenly open door and traffic coming up from behind. It can be deadly. Always look before you open!
