Maintain the 5 foot clearance even if riding within a bike lane might place you closer to the cars. (No tape measure? Five feet is enough for another cyclist your "invisible friend" to ride comfortably in the space between you and the parked cars.)

Avoid Being Hit
Motorists don't drive their cars in the door zone. Why are cyclists expected to? Why do we expect cyclists to get by with inches to spare?

Most car doors are three feet wide or more when extended, and clipping an open door with the right end of your handlebar will flip you out into the traffic lane.
within the door zone of parked cars, "taking the lane if necessary". That means tracking at least FIVE FEET from parked cars, not 3 feet. Suggesting 3 feet is like saying an 18' underpass clearance is 20'.
Agreed, 3' is inadequate. That won't always clear all doors, and doesn't allow you reaction room to avoid swerving.
