Tucson's Fleet of Ghost Bikes ~

There is an international effort called "Ghost Bikes" that strives to raise awareness of bicyclists who are killed by motorists. A white bicycle is placed near the scene of the accident and serves as a memorial. This bike honors little Jose Rincon who was just 14 years old when he was struck by a drunk driver on Broadway near Harrison. These white bikes are a powerful message.

  2. The bike is really little. It is so sad, I agree.
