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. 
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'.
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).
