In memory of...

I've always been intrigued by roadside memorials, so much so that I've been photographing them for a few years now. I guess, it could be the fact that as I drive by them, I always think about how somebody died quite violently doing exactly what I'm doing at that moment (driving), and that in a different time, it could have been me or somebody I love involved in that fatal crash.There lies the power of these and why I think that they are important for road safety, way more important and effective than some cop hiding behind a bridge to give you a fine for driving 11 kph over the speed limit.
