The fact is very few memorials last longer than a few weeks or a couple of months. The actual number of memorials is few compared to the number of people who die on the highways or in circumstances like this.

Ya you're right, they usually don't last. I'll never forget last time I was in Denver, there's this freeway that has this sketchy turn with concrete walls on both sides with practically no shoulder. Anyway you don't see it from a distance very well then you're turning pretty hard. There looked to be 50 Memorials plastered on that wall.

Maybe the concern should be aimed at fixing a 'sketchy turn' rather than a bunch of memorials

Ya, I really can't believe it hasn't been fixed. Where I'm from after just a couple deaths at one spot everybody is demanding some kind of fix.
