Daley brings hammer down on dooring

Chicago passed a new bicycle ordinance intended to make riding safer. Fines of $150 to $500 are provided for motorists:
1. Turning left or right in front of someone on a bicycle.
2. Passing with less than 3 feet of space between car and bike.
3. Opening a vehicle door into the path of a cyclist.
4. Parking or otherwise obstructing marked bike lanes.
There's more in the Chicago Tribune.
