Ghost bikes

"Many of the cycling activists who installed a ghost bike memorial at Spadina south of Dundas last fall didn’t know Carla Warrilow. She was struck and dragged under a truck while cycling on October 16, 2013. It took firefighters 15 minutes to free her, and she died a week later from her injuries.

"Ghost bikes are seen by family members as sad tributes to lost loved ones, and by cycling advocates as reminders to bike safe. The fate of the bikes has become an issue for the Public Works Committee since City Hall started receiving inquiries from cyclists and families opposed to their removal last year."
