Bathtub - but the sensors, which I paid to have fitted to provide additional safety, worked. Why do you think it's called a blind spot? Opening the driver's door "the Dutch way" (if you don't know what that is, look it up) certainly helps safety and everyone should be encouraged to do it. The passenger side though is much harder. And cyclists have responsibility too.
I have no idea what point you're trying to make, other than further proving your weren't looking at your blind spot when turning, placing the blame squarely at your feet.
If you know anything about cycling in the Netherlands, you'd know that cars are always at fault. The Dutch reach is taught for a reason - bikes are king of the road. I would love the UK to make 1/10 of the effort of NL to respect and encourage cycling.
