You would have to race to see who undoes their seatbelt first. The only time anyone ever opens my car door is when I valet park. He deserves a tip when he brings me back my car.
- The etiquette goes back to when ladies exited horse drawn carriages while managing layers of a long skirt with petticoat as they jumped to the ground. It was useful to have a gallant companion there to lend a hand.
In many cases, the doors of early cars were inordinately heavy, often stuck, and difficult to open.
- The need for another person to lend a convenient hand or have the strength to open a heavy door on a date no longer exists.
