Family of Sam Boulton to launch safety campaign in his memory
The family of a cyclist who died after being knocked into moving traffic by a car door have launched the 'Sam Says' campaign.
Teacher Sam Boulton was killed outside Leicester Railway Staition when a taxi passenger opened her door, forcing him and his bike into the path of a van as he cycled home. 
It is almost two years since Sam's tragic death.
Robbed of a son, brother and fiance, his family have suffered agonising loss and endured months of heartbreak.
Now the family have launched the 'Sam Says' campaign in their son's memory. It aims to help educate drivers about cyclists safety and the dangers of 'car-dooring'.
Dad Jeff Boulton said: "Losing Sam has been heart-breaking for the whole family, but the fact that his death was due to entirely avoidable behaviour is particularly painful. People need to be aware of the life-threatening dangers of opening their car doors onto the road without carefully checking for cyclists first.
Help us spread the word and use the 'Dutch Reach' (using the opposite hand to open the door forcing you to look around first).
