Georgia has slowly begun erecting highway signs memorializing people killed by drunk drivers. To be eligible, a person must have been killed by a drunken driver since May 13, 2004, the date the law was signed. Georgia had 450 drunken-driving fatalities that year. The death also must have occurred on a state or federal highway and the markers go up only after a guilty plea or conviction.
