Overview:

Christian crosses and other home-made road side memorials have become a matter of controversy, in Oregon, Utah, and other states. These markers are typically personal memorials that mark where a family member or friend was killed in a highway accident. In the case of Utah, they are installed by the state to mark where Highway Patrol officers have been killed in the line of duty.
