 The Heart in the Roadside Markers

​The Florida Department of Transportation established the Memorial Marker Program to commemorate those who have died as a result of vehicle related crashes on the State Highway System. In an effort to increase public awareness of highway safety, it is the Department's policy to allow the placement of memorial markers within the state road right of way.  

We Won't Stop Compilation

Everyday in our journey we come in contact with hundreds of people and each one is someone's son, daughter, wife, husband, father or mother. In this journey, we have our roles. May we never forget the critical role we play in ensuring their safety. When we know our roles and take actions, we can make a difference in pedestrian and bicycle safety.
