Motorists hate cyclists and cyclists hate the motorists and the pedestrians hate the bikers and everybody hates the trucks.

I'm not a fan of this campaign. Because most drivers are right handed, it works reasonably well in a left hand drive car, where (if you're right handed) you reach around with your stronger hand. It is very tricky in a right hand drive car, because who wants to twist just to use their weaker hand? Any person diligent enough to do that, is likely to be diligent enough to simply look or check their mirror, which is easier.
