comment Why do most public toilet doors open inwards?
@daniel.sedlacek - obviously the 'danger' will be the same on both sides but the consequences will be quite different. On the inside, the door will be locked and immoveable until you're ready to leave. If at that moment someone tries to get in then you will be pushed backwards a bit. On the outside, if you're walking past and the door opens then you're likely to run up against the edge of the door and more than likely the door will not give but transfer the force through its hinges. The likelyhood of injury is much greater in this case.
