Douglas -- The victims' families have commissioned a billboard to remind others about the dangers of drunk driving. This billboard will show pictures of all five children killed in the ATV crash with the words, Drunk Driving is Murder on our Highways.  The eight by thirteen foot billboard will go up along Highway 32 between Douglas and Ocilla.

"I don't want anybody to ever forget the lives of the children, the innocent children, we're doing it in memory of the children in hopes that nobody will ever forget that they were slaughtered by a drunk driver," said Ann Jowers, Lindsay Joyner's Aunt and billboard sponsor. 

The billboard will be paid for by family and friends.
