LA Times: With pedestrian and cyclist deaths rising, activists erect permanent memorials
By Scott Froschauer
LA Weekly Article on Ghost Bikes in Los Angeles and Co-Founder Danny Gamboa
The Yellow Bike Project is a response to our collective need to memorialize fallen cyclists designed and fabricated by experimental artist Scott Froschauer.
Each installation consists of a full scale steel sculpture of a bicycle mounted atop a 16' pole. The yellow color and shape of the bike sculpture is a reference to traffic signs wich caution drivers of the presence of bicycles. The choice of yellow also comes from the very first Yellow Bike which was designed for Sebastian Montero. He lost his life while riding near his High School in Reseda,CA. His favorite color was yellow.
Beneath the bike sculpture is a sign that connects the bicycle sculpture to the rider being memorialized with their name and the date of the incident. The sign also names "Streets Are For Everyone," the non-profit bicycle advocacy organiztion that is a partner in the project and the hashtag #SafetyMatters..
Jeff Knopp Memorial in Sunland
The Yellow Bike Project derives it's soul from the Ghost Bike movement. A Ghost Bike is a community created memorial in the form af a bicycle painted white and chained to a location near where a bicycle ftality has occurred. The benifit of the Ghost Bike is also a shortcoming, by acting without municipal authority or authorization a Ghost Bike can be placed very soon after a tragedy has occurred. But without government approval such a memorial is short lived. The goal of The Yellow Bike Project is to create memorials that can navigate municipal beuracracy and provide community awareness as highly visable and long term markers.
