Memorial Blvd Memorial to Cyclist Elliot Kaminitz

Last night (9/29/2012) a ghost bike appeared at the Memorial Blvd site of the fatal accident that claimed the life of Middletown resident Elliot Kaminitz on June 19, 2012. We don’t know who placed the memorial, but we hope it will serve both to honor Elliot and remind passing motorists to pay attention, drive carefully and share the road.

Ghost bikes have been appearing as roadside memorials all across the US and lately even more so in the northeast. The Boston Globe carried a feature story just last week. You can read more about ghost bikes herehere and elsewhere on the internet.
