Quote from the Boston article:
"Drivers should be careful when opening doors, but bicyclists also have a responsibility to obey traffic laws and not operate their bikes in a reckless manner, said Arthur Kinsman, spokesman for AAA Southern New England.
The proposed $500 fine is out of line with other traffic violations, Kinsman said.
''To me, a $500 fine sounds absurdly high,'' Kinsman said. "
Consider the source. Although AAA is a helpful organization for most people overall. they are notoriously anti-bike in my opinion. Their mission is to pave over the country, increase sprawl and put everyone in a SUV. It is in their best interest since it brings in lots of money to their organization.
