AZTEC, N.M.- Chaela Rambo lost her life in 1995 after a drunk driver struck her car.


"Chaela was 19 years old when she lost her life and she was planning on going into medicine or doing something where she could help other people," said Rambo's mother, Cyndi Lindquester. 

Shortly after that tragic night, a sign was placed in San Juan County to remind people about the dangers of driving drunk. 

Over the years, the sign took a beating from the elements.

Deputy Large, with the San Juan County Sheriff's Office, thought the sign could use an upgrade, so she decided to get the sign replaced.

"I think she would be very proud and she would know that she is helping people," Lindquester said.
