Currently In Limbo, ‘Ghost Bike’ Memorials For Fallen Cyclists May Get Formalized: SFist

Today, the Examiner writes that Warner and Mitchell are closer to getting their wish. Supervisor Norman Yee introduced a resolution last week to permit bike memorials as well as to implement “an immediate moratorium on the removal of any ‘Ghost Bike’ for one year so long as they are not obstructing local ordinances, such as blocking pedestrian egress.”According to a statement from Yee, “ghost bikes are powerful reminders to our community that we still have a long way to get to Vision Zero,” or the city’s goal of zero traffic related deaths by 2024. The resolution calls on the Bicycle Advisory Committee to form a partnership with Public Works and the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency “for an ordinance for the permitted placement of ‘Ghost Bikes’ or other memorials by citizens who wishes to do so.”
