Toronto ghost bike

A ghost bike is a bicycle roadside memorial, placed where a cyclist has been killed or severely injured, usually by a motor vehicle.

 

Apart from being a memorial, it is usually intended as a reminder to passing motorists to share the road. Ghost bikes are usually junk bicycles painted white, sometimes with a placard attached, and locked to a suitable object close to the scene of the accident.
