A couple of days ago I committed N-1. It's not as bad as it sounds, but maybe worse.
Last month, an acquaintance was riding home from an event that demonstrated how traffic calming and sharrows could be used to improve safety and traffic flow. She and a car connected and though she fought bravely she passed away a few days ago. That's the worse part. She was a respected member of the cycling community and an office in the largest bicycle club in the state, and she would have felt quite at home here in the 50+.
The better part was that N-1 became a ghost bike to mark the site of the collision. It was an old Huffy 3 speed, lacking chain and a few other bits. It really did make a nice ghost bike, the chain guard gave the bike a solidity and presence that most bikes don't have.
Since the accident, a large petition was submitted to the city council about putting sharrows in over a long section of roads including the place where she went down. It's become a focal point, and may ultimately speed up adoption of bicycle safety measures.
