“Watch your speed. In memory of Sebastian Montero.”
Southern California has official unveiled their first set of memorial signs to honor bicyclists killed on the road. The first sign, unveiled by Los Angeles City Councilman Bob Blumenfield, honors 15-year-old Sebastian Montero, the Reseda High School student who died in April 2018 while riding with a friend.
According to ABC7, that friend says Sebastian was like a brother to him...
"I think it's a true honor because not many people can do this for someone...I believe it is a great honor for somebody like this," Alejando Quintero said about the new memorial signs.
The sign for Sebastian Montero is now permanently at the intersection of De Soto Avenue and Burbank Boulevard in Woodland Hills.
“The signs themselves are wonderful,” said Blumenfield. “[But] they’re not going to solve our problems with people dying on the roads.”
