VIDEO: Always check your mirrors before opening your car door

A London cyclist escapes unhurt after riding into an opening car door at high speed

The video shows a Volkswagen coming to a stop outside an Underground station in London, with the passenger getting out, as the car waited in traffic.

But just as the passenger opened her door the cyclist filming the action was about to pass on the inside, leaving them no option but to plough into the door at speed.
