Families can honor a loved one killed in a DUI crash on Georgia state highways with a memorial sign.

The Criminal Justice Coordinating Committee, which operates the Georgia Crime Victims Compensation Program, is raising awareness about the DUI Memorial Fund.

If a loved one has passed away from a car crash on a Georgia state highway caused by a motorist driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, a memorial sign can be placed at the crash site upon request from an immediate family member.
