Never heard of such.
I hate to say this because it is a no-win situation on my part .......but.....I really don't like these memorial things. Those white bikes can be a danger to someone else. Just from the standpoint of someone glancing at them can take their eye off the road and cause a danger to others. Also, if someone crashes into that spot the bike can be a danger from that standpoint also.
Also if we allow memorials to everyone that died, the roadways will be nothing but cluttered with this stuff. And in my mind what;s the difference between them and littering anyway? Not much.
If your relative/friend dies, remember them in your way and leave the roadways uncluttered. Please
Highway departments go out of their way to make roadways safe. Light posts that break away. Guard rails that curve down and away at the ends. Debris removed from roadways and yet they allow this stuff to be put on roadways. Makes no sense to me.
I'm going on record to say this stuff should not be allowed. Say what you wish but I think it's crazy.
I've got some old bikes, motorcycles and such that need to be trashed. Hey, I got it, instead of paying to throw them away(as it does in some states), I'll just paint it white and throw it on the side of the road. Problem solved.
Art? As in the city project above................. Trash is still trash no matter how you dress it up.
