In order to increase public awareness of highway safety, St. Lucie County has adopted a policy allowing placement of memorial markers within the County's rights of way. The policy provides guidance for the uniform placement of the markers to memorialize individuals who have died as a result of a vehicle related crash and remind motorists to protect human life by driving safely. The county will bear costs for the construction, installation, maintenance and removal of the memorial markers.
