BROOKLYN - City officials are looking at a new plan that would remove ghost bikes from the streets of Brooklyn.

Placed at the sites of fatal accidents, the bicycles are painted white to memorialize the riders who were killed. Ghost bikes also serve as a reminder to other cyclists to stay safe and aware while riding.

The ghost bike removal is part of a citywide plan by the Sanitation Department to clear abandoned bikes from cluttering the streets.

The public will have a chance to voice their opinions on the proposal at a hearing on July 20.
