"I think it's still an uphill battle as they have to go after the officer for not writing the ticket (and not doing a damn thing to get information from the driver) in the first place and the result of that will likely be the fine."

"Surely the police can identify the driver. How is this not possible? BTW, to my best knowledge there is a $1,000 (yes, ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS) fine on the motorist for "Open Door in Traffic". Steve"

"I used it a couple years ago and didn't find it particularly helpful. It seemed like they had a canned response to any call: Go to the hospital; They will refer you to a lawyer. In my case, that wasn't helpful. I can see it being helpful…"

"Ouch! Hard to look at. Reminiscent of what happened to me years ago and a police did nothing except call the ambulance. This is wrong but we have come a long way. The streets are so much safer than they ever used to be but we all have to be careful.…"

"I don't know the specifics of the law, but I would guess that it would be possible to sue the police department for not reporting an accident. If civilians can be charged with a misdemeanor and $2500 for not reporting an accident, can't…"

"I got the cameras I carry now (Hero 3 on the front, Fly6 on the rear) because I witnessed a hit and run. I was following a driver, who didn't bother to stop at all at a stop sign, and only stepped on the brakes when he had a cyclist who was…"

"Point of clarification: IPRA doesn't investigate cases like this.  CPD has their own internal investigators, and you can draw your own conclusions about how they would investigate.  Don't let that dissuade you from reporting it,…"

"Glad the driver came forward. I'm thinking of carrying a copy of the opening-the-door-into-traffic verbiage with me whenever I go biking in the street now, just so I have a backup. I didn't see this mentioned in any of the posts, so if I…"

"UGH! I don't live in Chicago any longer but I still follow The Chainlink. That driver and the CPD officer must both be brought to book. I look forward to positive updates in the near future."

"> This incident proves the need for cyclists to come to the aid and assistance (if possible) of fellow cyclists involved in any traffic incident. I've been doored a couple times, most recently on Milwaukee about a year ago. (*) I know…"

"It's unfortunate that this has been such a widespread problem for so many years. When a supervisor is part of the problem, they tend to encourage officers under them to NOT do their jobs on stuff like this. That's why it's so…"
