Reduce Door Swing

I would like to reduce how far out my door swings open. Is there anything that I can install in the hinge area of the door to shorten up how far open the doors swing?

Maybe it's just your door check that has failed. I replaced mine on driver's side on my 07 just a couple of weeks ago because it wasn't holding my door any more.

He probably owns a coupe not a sedan our doors are long, it's really not that hard to be careful though.

Sorry, it is a cobalt LS coupe. So, Andrew, you don't think that I can do anything to reduce the width of my door swing? Coby7, how would I see if the door check has failed? Thanks for all of your help!!!

Compare it with passenger side. My driver's side had no resistance at all and would fly open.
