    When I’m driving down the road and see these memorials, they remind me that someone lost a loved one there and our roads are still dangerous to drive on. Maybe this is something MDOT doesn’t want to be reminded of. Making a statement that the memorials are distracting is a lame statement. The memorials remind drivers to slow down and take note that someone’s life ended here. A memorial is something that helps a grieving parent and other loved ones to cope with a reality, it is something next to sacredness. Taking the memorials down is like taking a tombstone away from a grave. We should at the least allow a certain time limit on them. They are no more a distraction than many other things along the roadways.

    The best way to fix this is call your local state rep and let them know how you feel, if they don’t respond remember that with your vote.

    The transportation director needs to be voted out…..period!!!!!! He made no sense at all with his two sided excuse.

    This “clearing up confusion” made no sense at all. My family is still hurt and confused.

    Well, that sounds like a truly political response. Doing a lot of talking and not saying anything that really addresses the issue that people really want to hear. I don’t have a memorial anywhere but this has hurt a lot of people and none of the memorials that I have had time to see have caused a distraction.
