City officials in Contra Costa County are cracking down on roadside memorials.

The shrines are common along the Highway 4 bypass connecting Antioch and Brentwood, but after receiving several calls from drivers the agency that controls the Highway 4 bypass says it will begin removing those displays immediately because they are a traffic hazard.

Agency officials say the new policy applies to all memorials.
