The families of drunken driving victims might soon be able to put up roadside memorial signs in Peoria County.

The signs would also be aimed at sending a powerful reminder to motorists of the deadly toll that drunken driving takes on the community.

The (Peoria) Journal Star reports (http://bit.ly/Jc0yi5 ) that the county's transportation committee recently recommended the entire board approve the proposal.

The request came from County Engineer Amy McLaren.

The signs would feature the message "Please don't drink and drive" above a plaque listing the name of a person killed in such a crash.

The fee for the signs would be about $200.

The full board will vote on the measure in January.
