Bicyclist almost doored by taxi passenger in “protected” Kinzie bike lane

Type

Almost doored

What happened

Passenger of cab exited from car lane on the right side (bike lane side) – dinged my bell but passenger continued to exit so I had to swerve to right.

Suggested improvements for this location: protected bike lane.

Ed. note: The bike lane is here called protected but aside from parked cars it does not prevent people from maneuvering their cars into the hatched zones at each intersection where parking isn’t allowed. Nor does it prevent people from driving in it.
