More a Ghost Bike, Unfortunately – Saturday 3/27/10

The message below was sent this week by Cleber Anderson and explains the situation for me:

Unfortunately, yesterday, Saturday 20 March 2010 – around 3:00 pm, Manoel Pereira Torres, a 53-year-old cyclist Sir who wore every day your bike out of the Favela of peace at Interlagos until the Itaim where he worked as a doorman in r. Joaquim Floriano, was crossing the street at a crosswalk after the lighthouse opened for him When was hit violently by a motorcycle that was coming at full speed bus lane in Alderman Avenue Jose Diniz, meaning a district centre just before the beginning of Banespa. The speed that the bike was going on was so great that threw the body of Mr. Manoel against the light at a height of 3 meters. Your bike, thrown against the steel pole, folded in half.

The irony is that the project of the new Councilman Jose Diniz Avenue should be a bike path, which simply was forgotten by the authorities of the time. Once charged, they build another one of “compensation”, parallel to the new Avenue. Her circulating many cyclists who, due to the aclividade of the region, are a good way to cross the avenues Water Spreading and Vincent Rao, who stay in deep valleys.

Who’s going to compensate the death of Mr. Manoel and the risk that other cyclists run without the promised?

and your bike folded in half photo

The news wasn’t in the papers. After all, your Manoel was just a caretaker, lived in a slum. Was someone of upper-middle-class, we would have known by the press and not by a witness. Was a contestant on Big Brother, a SOAP actor, an entrepreneur or a football player known, there would be national commotion. But your Manoel, now… Was just a Manoel any, doesn’t it? Another one joins the statistics of at least one cyclist killed by assassins who travels at high speed, or by others who believe could tame cyclists pedaling on the pavement endangering their lives with a thin.

That can be fatal.

Cyclists will join tomorrow, Saturday 27, to install at the crash site murder a white bike, known as Ghost Bike. For your Manoel’s death isn’t just a nuisance to traffic, for which the Government wake up and see that the default policy has your price in lives to the CET stop accepting change lives for fluidity, for all to see that the life of any citizen has the same value.

The dough will assemble at the square of the cyclist, at 9 A.M., to go up to AV. Councilman Jose Diniz, height of the number 1750, to perform the installation. It will be a peaceful, democratic, and important to educate people – and mainly the Government – about the importance of a more humane city, that enhances people’s lives more than the speed with which machines can travel. The tribute will be made around 11:00, in case you want to go directly to the site.

Report to act, with or without a bike. Even by car you will be welcome. We hope that with this the Subprefecture of Santo Amaro if raises awareness for the need for an on-site bike trail or bikelane signs protecting the cyclist in the region. It’s no use pretending not to see: the rider there is, is part of the traffic travels through all the regions of the city all day, has the same right to travel than the owners of automobiles and motorcycles and the same right to get it home at the end of the day.

Turn a blind eye to the existence of the cyclist in the city is condemning many of them to death. Let’s wake up, City Hall. Let’s wake up, CET. Kill indirectly, without having to look into the eyes of the victim, doesn’t weigh on your conscience and allows you to sleep at night. Decisions that prioritize the flow of motorized vehicles at the expense of the safety of pedestrians and cyclists result in deaths,

Think about it. Learn more See on a map where you will be installing the Ghost Bike this Saturday to see how was the installation of the last Ghost Bike in Sao Paulo, named after the cyclist Fernando Couto and gari Antonio Ribeiro meet international our website.
