Ghost Bike removal in Durham

Eunice Chang and Howard Staab remove a ghost bike on Hillandale Road in Durham. Under the city's roadside memorial policy, Chang had 45 days to remove the bike after someone complained. The ghost bike memorialized Seth Vidal, who died after he was struck by a hit-and-run driver while riding his bike on Hillandale in July 2013. Following complaints about the memorial rules, city staffers are exploring revising the policy. Video by Virginia Bridges, vbridges@newsobserver.com
