EDITOR: Roadside memorials serve an important purpose.
I have read several articles criticizing roadside memorials, saying they are a distraction and unsafe. I see it differently. For me, roadside memorials serve as a reminder of how dangerous our highways are, and to drive safely.
What is a distraction to drivers is texting. Forget the memorials; ban texting while driving everywhere.
