This situation is not one of those nice clear cut answers, but it depends on the situation. If your rear door was open enough to block traffic, or the flow of traffic, then you would be At Fault. By the same token if the person in the other car was driving in some manner that was reckless they could be at fault. This also depends on how your state laws work on impeding the flow of traffic.

It is the taxi driver because of where he parked.Added: Partially incorrect: The correct charge is: 'Opening Door to Traffic Side.' The party who actually opened the door on the traffic side is the one who is charged. The taxi driver MAY be charged if it can be proven that they negligently contributed to the act by not stopping at a curb to discharge the passenger, but since the driver did not have control over the operation of the door in the rear of the vehicle, he is not culpable for the act.
