Wow what a nice jesture, but an even nicer jesture would be to use the money that is funding this memorial to improve the roads the people died on!!!

You can put up as many guard rails, speed limits, and jersey barriers as you want, and there will still be traffic accidents. The memorials help remind drivers that it is their responsibility to drive safely to protects themselves and those around them.
