The Dutch Reach: How opening your car like the Dutch could save cyclists lives 

Evening Standard logo
Cycling in London has lots of great benefits: you avoid the rush hour crowds on the Underground, you save money on your travel and you get to pack in some exercise on your commute. But everyone knows that there are dangers to cycling in any major city, especially when you have to share the roads with cars, lorries, busses and mopeds. One of the big issues that cyclists and motorists face today is "car dooring" - where drivers carelessly open their doors and knock cyclists off of their bikes. DfT data collected by charity Cycling UK revealed that between 2011 and 2015 there were 3,108 people injured and eight killed by motorists hastily exiting their cars without checking the traffic around them. The group his now calling for car occupants to adopt the so-called Dutch Reach method, believing that it could save lives on the road. But what is it and how do you do it? Here's everything you need to know. What is the Dutch Reach? Read more A new bike hire scheme has been launched in London The technique originated 50 years ago in the Netherlands, where there are currently more than 13 million bikes on the road. The simple maneuver asks motorists to reach for their car door handle using their far rather than near hand; this means motorists are forced to turn their body towards the door, allowing them to look in their rear view at the traffic behind them. The idea is that they will have an extra second or two to look over their shoulder and see whether a cyclist is coming. Opening the door with the adjacent arm also limits how far your car door can open, preventing you from creating a fatal obstacle in the road. (Shutterstock / Jne Valokuvaus) Why are people calling for the Dutch Reach to be adopted? Some UK cities are starting to build protected paths for cyclists, but in most places, cyclists routes are situated in a " door zone " - between parked cars and the main road. This means that until cities can invest in better infrastructure for cyclists, they remain at the mercy of drivers. Cycling UK wrote to transport minister Jesse Norman this week, calling for the launch of an awareness campaign to teach drivers and passengers of the dangers of opening car doors without looking first. "Dooring" was responsible for 474 accidents across the UK in 2015, according to the Department of Transport (DfT). Cities like Amsterdam and Copenhagen already use the method, while in the Netherlands, the Dutch Reach is taught to children both in school. Being able to perform the Dutch Reach is also a required section of the driving test in Holland. Now cycling charities are calling for the method to become a necessary component of passing your test here in the UK. Currently offenders in the UK only face a maximum penalty if just £1,000 for "dooring", even if a cyclist is killed. "Some people seem to see car dooring as a bit of a joke, but it's not and can have serious consequences," Paul Tuohy, Cycling UK's chief executive, said. "Cycling UK wants to see greater awareness made about the dangers of opening your car door negligently, and people to be encouraged to look before they open. "In the Netherlands they are known for practising a method, known sometimes as the Dutch Reach, which we think could be successfully encouraged in the UK."... read more

Jeremy Corbyn opens the door to Britain staying in EU single market forever 

Evening Standard logo
Jeremy Corbyn today left open the possibility that Britain could remain a member of the EU single market indefinitely after Brexit. In a major signal of his party's post-Brexit position, the Labour leader said he wanted the UK to continue to "trade within the single market" and added it was "open for discussion" whether this should involve formal membership even after a transitional period. Mr Corbyn insisted he respected the outcome of the 2016 referendum but said he wanted Britain to retain membership of "many" EU agencies following its withdrawal from the 28-nation bloc. Asked about Labour's plans following a post-Brexit implementation period, the Labour leader said: "We want a relationship which allows us to trade within the single market." He told the BBC's World at One: "Whether that's formal membership - which is only possible, I believe, if you are actually a member of the EU - or whether it's an agreed trading relationship, is open for discussion." Labour announced last month it favoured continued membership of the single market and customs union during a transition period lasting as long as four years after the formal Brexit date of March 2019. But the party is yet to announce a firm policy for the longer term, with shadow Brexit secretary Sir Keir Starmer saying Labour was "flexible" on the issue. Mr Corbyn also said he hoped the UK would "forever" remain a signatory to the European Convention on Human Rights and subject to the European Court of Human Rights, which is not an EU body. Nonetheless, he argued that Britain should not break off its close contact with EU institutions which enable cross-border co-operation on a wide range of issues. "I want to build a relationship with Europe and I want to work in Europe - a Europe that works for the many, not for the few - and remain a member of European institutions," he said. "We are obviously going to be forever signed up, I hope, to the European Court of Human Rights and the European Convention on Human Rights. Read more Jeremy Corbyn's left-wing Labour takeover 'cannot be stopped' "But there are many other EU-related agencies that we should be members of and ensure that this close relationship of manufacturing industry and universities remains and the close relationship of peoples across Europe remains." Following Mr Corbyn's radio appearance, the leader's office put out a statement clarifying the party's position on single market membership after Brexit. It said: "Our position hasn't changed. We won't be "members" of the single market after the transition. "We want to achieve full tariff free access to the single market. That could be achieved by a new relationship with the single market or a bespoke trade deal with the EU, which was what Jeremy was referring too."... read more
