Almost doored on Damen, but driver apologized

Type

Almost doored
Injury: No

What happened

Roadway description: Bike lane (left of parking lane)

Your story: I was riding north on Damen Avenue at night. Lots of bikers on the road. Almost got doored but I swerved out of the way. Just kept riding because I was late and heard the driver apologize as I rode away.

Suggested improvements: smarter drivers, fewer cars, better bike lanes [assuming this to mean bike lanes not in door zones].
