Fines of up to $500 for motorists possible under new Chicago bicycle ordinance

When a motorist flings a door open in front of a cyclist passing in the bike lane, Chicago bikers call it a "dooring" and often just charge it to the cost of riding in a big city.

As of Wednesday, the City Council calls it illegal and will charge motorists anywhere from $150 to $500 for each violation.
