Each memorial here is built on the hope
of preventing another death.


  1. How can I create a memorial for my loved one?
    To create a Memorial, you must be an immediate family member (child, mother, father, brother, sister, spouse).
  2. What is the purpose of this Memorial Wall?
    The purpose of this Memorial Wall is to provide a venue for families and friends to memorialize those killed in a motor vehicle crash in North Dakota. These memorials will personalize the motor vehicle crash to the public by communicating real-life stories for educational purposes.
    This Memorial Wall will assist in developing a network of victim advocates who may share their experiences with other families who have lost a loved one, volunteer to assist with media and policy advocacy, speaking engagements, and other public information and education opportunities at the family’s desired level of participation.

    This Memorial Wall will also provide NDDOT Districts an alternative recommendation for families to use instead of roadside memorials.
  3. Who created this site?
    North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT)
  4. How do I leave a comment?
