Victim Memorial Signs On Texas Roadways

Remembering a victims name, may make you think twice about drinking and driving. That's what a new program allowing memorial signs hopes to do. 

Family and friends can purchase the memorial signs by submitting an application to TxDOT. 
The signs will have the victims name, date of the crash...and the phrase "Please don't drink and drive."

"One of the things we want is people to realize drinking and driving is a deadly combination and hopefully it will deter some drunk driving crashes," said TxDOT Traffic Safety Specialist Tracy Tellman.

The signs cost three hundred dollars and they will be placed near the site of the crash. Each sign will have a blue background with white lettering. After a year the signs will be offered to the people who applied for them. To learn more on how to apply log on to www.txdot.gov
