typical thick cyclist, when passing parked vehicles you should always make room in case the door opens, common sense .

A woman is injured and taken to hospital as a result of someone negligently flinging a door open without checking to see if anyone was passing, and your response is to call her 'thick'?

What a charmer you are.

Yes Wheely, a typically thick cyclist. Pretty much the first thing any NORMAL road user is tought, is to allow sufficent room to avoid unexpected events - like car doors opening - or children exiting buses.

It will interesting to see if this woman pays for the damage she undoubtably caused.

Okay. Now I know you're a WUM.

She has to pay for the damage to the door caused by someone swinging it open into her path?

Nice try.

Sadly, I don't know what a 'WUM' is. Therefore, I am neither insulted or honoured by your application of this term to me.

However, it is clear that you are one of the many cyclists who consider being responsible for their actions as being an offence to their very existance.
