    We've all seen the crosses by the road where folks have died in auto accidents. On the good ones you can even see their names, farewells from their children, etc. Hopefully they make people think about auto safety. At least a bit.

    NPR is reporting today on a variation; bicycles painted white and placed where bicyclists have been killed on the road. It sounds like a good idea.

    Maybe we all ought to keep an old bicycle on hand, ready to be painted white for the sake of some neighbor. And, of course, we can hope never to need it.
