Not to be confused with a tripwire for use on cars. And no, [[IThoughtItMeant Toyota doesn't have a car called the Tripwire.]] Compare with CarFu. Contrast with PedestrianCrushesCar. See also TheDoorSlamsYou.

* There's an old Australian BlackComedy joke in which a travelling swagman is picked up by a guy in a snazzy new Mercedes with the traditional hood ornament. The driver spends a while bragging to the swagman about the various bells and whistles of his car, before jokingly saying the hood ornament is a sight for running over cyclists, before rather irresponsibly trying to get close to a cyclist and swerve off at the last moment. He hears a thump and sees the cyclist on the road in some pain. The swagman says, "Get your sights checked - if I hadn't opened the door, you'd have missed him!"
** A variant involves a priest and a lawyer. "[[EvilLawyerJoke Don't worry my son, I got him with the door!]]"

* In an old Australian joke, a wealthy city-dweller in a shiny new Mercedes picks up a swagman who obviously hasn't been in a car since the Model T Ford. The swaggie asks what all of the bells and whistles do, and when he gets to the hood ornament, the city-dweller decides to have some fun with him and [[BlackComedy says it's a sight to make it easier to run over cyclists]]. Now, some cyclists are just up ahead, so the city-dweller moves as if to hit one, then swerves at the last second, only to hear a thump. He looks back to see the cyclist lying in the road, obviously in considerable pain. Then the swagman says, "Next time you get a service, you should get your sights checked - if I hadn't opened the door, you would have missed him!"

* Bob Roll, a TourDeFrance commentator for Versus and former cyclist, was at the medic car when he was in the tour. The doctor then accidentally opened the car door, sending Bob flying. The whole event was caught on video. Keep in mind that a member of the official medical staff did this to a cyclist in the ''Tour de France''.

* How does John Wick deal with a motorcycle pursuer in ''Film/JohnWickChapter2''? By opening the door and slamming the brakes of course! This is a rare moving-vehicle version of this trope.

* An EvilLawyerJoke has this as the punchline: A man picks up a hitchhiking priest on the highway. Several minutes later, he sees a hitchhiking lawyer, and immediately speeds up to run him over. At the last second, he remembers he has a priest in the back seat and swerves, narrowly missing the lawyer.
-->'''Man:''' ''[trying to play it off as an accident]'' Wow, that was close! I almost ran over that lawyer!\\
'''Priest:''' Do not worry, my son. I got him with my door.

* A rather gruesome episode from the pseudo-documentary ''Series/UntoldStoriesFromTheER''. A teenager that was biking comes in with a severely slit throat. It turns out that she was on the side of the road when another woman in the car opened her door. [[spoiler: the girl on the bike makes it.]]
