Roadside remembrance

This is a little shrine someone put together, probably for a loved one who died in an accident on this bit of the road. With the advent of seat belt requirements, air bags, and a crackdown on drunk drivers, we are seeing many fewer auto related fatalies in this country than when I was young.  The year I first got my full driver's license, there were 26 fatalities per 100,000 popuation. In 2017, the rate was 11.4.  Still, there seem to be quite a lot of these showing up from time to time.  Maybe people around here are a more reckless or hapless segment of the population?
