(Jefferson City, MO) -- Families who have had loved ones killed by drunk drivers might soon be able to put up roadside memorial signs.
Legislation that is now on Governor Nixon's desk would allow families to purchase special tribute signs for about $1,000. Representatives says the signs could cut down on drunk driving incidents.
The memorial signs will be the same size as other roadside signs. At the top, it will say "Drunk driving victim." The sign will have the person's initials and the month and year they were killed. At the bottom, it will say "Think about it!"
The signs would be kept for up to 10 years and maintained by MoDOT. If Nixon signs the bill into law, the drunk driving signs could start showing up as soon as next year.
