SECOND UPDATE: The male passenger will be fined for the offence of causing a hazard by opening a car door into the path of a person/vehicle. The police have confirmed I was riding legally and was entitled to ride where I was. Thank you again for all your help with this incident.

UPDATE: A man is assisting police with their investigation. Thank you all for your help in identifying him.

This dooring happened at approximately 7PM on the corner of Collins and Swanston Streets, Melbourne on 17 March 2014 in the gutter bike lane (yes, it IS a bike lane, although the technical term is a 'refuge zone' for cyclists to filter up to the front of traffic).

I was travelling slowly ( less than 15kph ) when he opened his door without warning.

The taxi was stopped in traffic at the red traffic light (not stopped beside the curb to let the men out). The driver said he told them not to get out there as there are cyclists. Clearly!

Do you know any of these three men?

They failed to stop at the scene of a collision and refused to give their details when requested.

They were picked up by the taxi at the Tonic Bar at Crown Promenade and were going to the theatre at the Regent Theatre.

Thank you to the cyclists for asking whether I was okay just after it happened, trying to help and to the one who gave me his details. And thank you to the taxi driver too for trying to help identify them.
