Hi Everybody.

Have you heard about the Ghost Cycle Project in Seattle? It’s kind of a cool thing. They collected a bunch of reports about bicycle accidents. At the location of each accident they placed a wrecked bicycle, painted white, with a sign, “A Cyclist was struck there. www.ghostcycle.org.” Kind of like a cross between a bicycle safety awareness project and an art installation.

Riding around town, you see these things all over the place. It’s been fun.

Check it out and tell us what you think.

It's a good idea. People have been doing this in Toronto for years. Only difference is 'they' paint a bicycle on the road where it was struck.

Truthfully I don't think it makes any difference to car drivers. Too many cyclists breaking the rules of the road to garner any real sympathy or respect.
