John Kuo, administrator for the Motor Vehicle Association, said the bright yellow statue is meant to serve as a safety reminder for the state's motorists, The Baltimore Sun reported Wednesday.
Kuo, who said both of his siblings were killed in a car crash when he was 12, said the 500 road-related deaths last year was a record low for the state.
"Can you imagine, we only lost 500 people and that's a reason to be happy?" Kuo asked. "Why do we accept the loss of life on our roads?"
The 2-ton statue made its debut during the summer at Baltimore's Artscape festival and was put in storage for a few months until the Motor Vehicle Association chose its final location.
