The City has adopted a roadside memorial signage program that offers families an additional opportunity to honor and remember their loved ones who have died in car accidents. The signs also serve as stark reminders to motorists and their passengers of the responsibility shared by everyone to drive safely and sober. This program addresses both drunk driving as well as other main causes of roadway fatalities. The City of Kennewick Roadside Memorial Sign Program was created as a compromise between the conflicting interests of meeting the emotional needs of those who have lost family members in crashes, and the Public Works Department’s responsibility to maintain a safe roadway system.
