This video project highlights white crosses and other roadside memorials which mark locations where Yavapai County motorists have lost their lives as a result of traffic related collisions.
In addition to memorializing loved ones who lost their life in a traffic crash, the memorials further serve as a reminder of the importance of safe driving. Many of the crosses represent someone who lost their lives due to impaired driving, speeding or other illegal or unsafe driving practices.
The hope of the short video is to have an impact on viewers, especially young drivers, to focus on the dangers of impaired, distracted and other dangerous driving habits.
