What's going on, Albuquerque?
Ghost Bike on Osuna west of I-25 in memory of Scott Dwane Lane, 1956 - 2012. How many more ghost bikes are there in ABQ? Please watch out for bikes in traffic. Cyclists, please light up at night so we can see you.
The ghost bikes are erected by the Duke City Wheelmen Foundation, headed by Jennifer Buntz. They have done a really admirable job, first of all in advocating for recognizing Ghost Bikes as descansos (and therefore earning them protected status), and in fighting for bike-friendly legislation.
Their website has a listing of some of the ghost bikes they have installed.
Mr. Lane was killed by a driver running a red light. Who refused to admit she ran the red light up to her sentencing. What was she sentenced to? House arrest and a fine. For killing someone. Did she lose her driver's license? No. She gets to go on driving, continue to run red lights and kill people. Fabulous.
