UK issues fines for incorrectly opening your car door

In England, Dutch Reach is mandatory. If you do not do this, you will face a hefty fine of up to 1,200 euros. A large sum of money that you would rather spend elsewhere. So pay attention your next visit to the Queen, because you can’t forget this.


We all know those annoying cyclists. They don’t look forward to anything and always take priority. So accidents are inevitable. But what if you could prevent this? The English are fed up with the annual bike accidents. In 2020, the English had 16,294 bike accidents. We were a bit shocked by this too. There were almost 350,000 bike accidents in the Netherlands in 2020. This is of course completely bizarre. It’s time to put an end to this.

Dutch arrival

Fortunately, this has not yet happened in the Netherlands, but you still need to be aware of this procedure. “Dutch access” is an action that takes place while the car door is open. So get the “Dutch oven” idea out of your head. The Dutch Reach technique involves opening the door with your farthest hand. Are you behind the wheel? Then you have to open the door with your right hand. When you do this you are forced to go backwards. Through this turn you see cyclists or others approaching traffic. This has saved some cyclists from a bloody ride. Didn’t you learn this during your driving lessons? Then it’s smart to inform your driving school, because England is now very strict. We have to admit that the chance of being caught is very small, but from the size of the fine we can see how serious it is. English aims to prevent approximately 500 accidents on an annual basis. They will likely succeed with this fine.
