Ridiculous what state's will determine is "necessary expenses". Hopefully with enough backlash they'll rethink this dumb idea.These are great shots! It's a sad reminder when we see these memorials on the roadsides to be alert and drive safe. Life is precious and it can end at any moment. I live in southwest TN and just last week our local news announced that the state of Mississippi will be paying MDOT employees to remove all of the memorials off their roadsides. They said it was a matter of safety. I strongly disagree, and so do many others according to the Facebook discussion I read. I can't see how MS, being one of the poorest states, with the worst roads I've ever drove on, would spend funds doing something like this instead of many other things the road systems need more urgently! These memorials, like I said, are a reminder to everyone to drive safe, value life, and they help grieving families maybe cope with their lose.
Oh, so sorry to hear that Robert... :'(This is such a poignant series for me. While I really appreciate these images, it takes me back to when my father was tragically killed in a motor vehicle accident while away in Los Angeles on business. It was 27 years ago but i remember it like it was yesterday. I miss him every day!
Love you Dad, and miss you!
My boys would have loved their grandfather.
