I rarely use Ubers, but needed to catch one yesterday. About 30 seconds prior to the destination, an alert pops up on my phone saying something to the effect of:

"This is a popular cycling route, please check for cyclists before opening your door".

Whoever came up with that simple but effective idea deserves credit.

also of interest is action by ACT police regarding close passing

As Noel says elsewhere NSW is a looooong way behind almost anywhere else on cycling issues
