Silhouettes, gardens, benches and others...
There are many other ways of remembering and ways to remind drivers of their responsibilities on the road.
RoadPeace members have erected benches, planted trees, commemorated gardens and put up all kinds of individual memorials to their loved ones.
Different countries have different ways of expressing their need to remember and mourn those killed on the road.
In France black silhouettes are erected by local authorities to commemorate road crash victims. These are put up for a month and intended predominantly as a cautionary measure to other road users. Silhouettes were designed by a French artist after his son was killed while crossing a bridge. They are black, life-size, and disfigured by a red, lightning-shaped gash across the face.
Like ghost bikes, the silhouettes are gradually becoming an international symbol of road death.
