Mostly we don’t ride streets with many parked cars, but when we do, TRC members too often error on the side of staying to the right which puts them directly in the Door Zone. The laws in both Idaho and Washington do not require you to ride in a hazardous position nor to share a lane that is too narrow to allow for safe passing. Cyclists are often guilty of rude behavior but in this case we are more likely to be excessively courteous with potentially devasting results. –Corrie
You’ve just parked, turned off your car, and given a sigh of relief that you’re no longer stuck in traffic. You reach for your things, kick open your door and CRASH!
