Roadside Memorials

What are cemetaries for? I am tired of seeing these "tacky" roadside memorials alongside State, City and County roadways.

What makes me even madder is that I have seen my taxdollars paying for the upkeep (mowing and weedeating) around these memorials. These are on government owned and maintained properties and are eyesores made up of crosses made of PVC pipes, plastic flowers and other unsightly displays better left from the view of travelers of our public roads and visitors to this State.

This practice of errecting shrines of deceased individuals is better left to cemetaries or more appropriate venues. Did I mention it is illegal to litter the roadways and no matter what anyone says..this is litter.
