door:zone

Following from the some of the items I mentioned in the bike:vs:car post, here is an example video of what happens when you include the parking area within the bike lane and what I as a cyclist is trying to avoid and why sometimes I cycle where I do.

This distance needs to be taken into account when you are designing these shared areas.
