The thing I just don't get about this video clip is that neither the cyclist nor the pedestrian apologise to each other.
It strikes me that the entire incident would have gone away entirely if they had simply turned to check the other was OK. Riding into a door at speed is extremely dangerous but the guy in the suit seemed oblivious to the hurt he had (inadvertently) inflicted on this woman.
Similarly, the cyclist's reaction clearly alienated many. Had she reacted differently, this would be an opportunity to raise awareness and prevent future accidents; not become the polarising video that it is.
The video was shot by a female cyclist who was riding down the gap between traffic and the kerb in Collins Street in central Melbourne – described in local reports as a “cycling refuge” rather than “a designated bike lane.” As she does so, the rear passenger door of a taxi is opened into her path, with no time for her to avoid the collision.
