Courier vs cyclists

Yesterday I put up a short video of a courier or tradesman displaying the "going back to my car" method of dooring a cyclist. Today, we have the alternative - the "getting out of my car" method. In this instance, the very busy courier, who is too busy to bother looking before opening his door, nearly takes out two cyclists. Whilst parked illegally in a cycle lane.

The quality of this video is too poor to capture his first attempt at taking out the cyclists. He threw the doors open just as the lead cyclist tried to get around his van, and then pulled it closed to allow them past before chucking it open again - all you see here is the second hurling open of the door.

I should have let his tyres down as he ran across the road through the traffic to deliver a box to a cafe on the corner.
