The VTA are rolling out new stickers to be placed in metropolitan and urban taxis to remind passengers to ‘check for bikes’ when exiting taxis. Stickers will be distributed through metro and urban depots in the coming weeks to be placed on the rear driver side door.
A recent tragic accident on Sydney Road in Brunswick has reminded us that while car doorings between cyclists and taxis are not common, the results can be devastating.
The VTA is also engaged in a working group on ‘car doorings’ with the Road Safe Action Group Inner Melbourne supported by a TAC community road safety grant dedicated to developing behaviour change initiatives and raise awareness to prevent car doorings in inner Melbourne.
