Tift County- A wrecked car is parked along Highway 82 to serve as a reminder of what can happen when people drive drunk.

Brian Willis was struck and killed by a drunk driver eight years ago. His brother Harrell formed a foundation in his honor.

NOw, he hopes the wrecked car will encourage people to think twice about whether they want to allow liquor by the drink.

"The way I look at it we have enough here already and if we add to the problem we have with drugs and alcohol already it's just going to be that many more people drinking and driving," says Harrell Willis.

Willis plans to move the car to several other locations around Tifton before Monday night's joint city council and county commission meeting.
