One Dawsonville family is remembering a loved one who was killed by a drunk driver through the placement of a roadside sign at the site of the wreck. Through a program with the Criminal Justice Coordinating Council of Georgia, the Georgia Department of Transportation on Oct. 4 created and placed a sign on Hwy. 136 just before Bailey Waters Road to commemorate the life of Jerry Waters, 68, who died May 10, 2015 from injuries sustained in a May 2 wreck.
