A memorial commemorates those who have lost their lives in road crashes, as well as acknowledging those who are confronted with the aftermath of these crashes as part of their daily working lives, including ambulance personnel, police, CFS and SES members and health professionals.

The design for the memorial  includes three leaf/pod forms fabricated from stainless steel with imagery and text added through laser cutting. Students at Millicent High School were also approached by Ms Egan of the Wattle Range Road Safety Group Sub-Committee for images and messages to be incorporated in the design and she also spoke to the students about the impact of having lost her daughter, Kellie, who was killed in a road accident.
