Roadside Memorial Signs

Jefferson County will install memorial signs in honor of victims of fatal crashes based on the following criteria:

  • Memorial signs may be erected to commemorate victims of fatal crashes occurring after May 20, 2004.
  • The sign must be requested by the victim’s immediate family or sponsor with the consent of the victim’s family.
  • The county will install and maintain the sign for six years. After this time, the sign will be removed and donated to the victim’s family or sponsor.
  • Memorial signs will not be erected for deceased drivers involved in fatal crashes whose toxicology reports show a violation of Colorado DUI laws, unless the immediate family of any other victim(s) killed in the crash grant permission.
