In order to increase public awareness of highway safety, it is the Florida Department of Transportation's policy to allow placement of memorial markers within the Florida's Turnpike Right of Way. The purpose of these markers is to memorialize people who have died as a result of a vehicle related crash and to remind motorists to protect human life by driving safely. The cost for the construction, installation, maintenance and removal of the memorial marker will be covered by the Florida Department of Transportation. The markers will be allowed to remain in place for a minimum of one year.
Requests for memorial markers may be made by immediate family members or friends of deceased car crash victims. These requests should be submitted in writing to the address below:
