Ghost bikes/ghost shoes are small roadside memorials for people killed while bicycling or walking.

A bicycle or pair of shoes is painted white and affixed near the crash site, generally accompanied by a small plaque and flowers. The ghost memorials serve as visual reminders of the person whose life ended in traffic violence at that location, and of the need for safe streets.
