I'm not sure that putting other people's lives in danger is the right way to honor someone's memory . . .
Several family members near Oakland, California were driving home from a relative's funeral on Monday.
And while they were going down the highway, they started throwing CASH out of their window to, quote, "honor the man who died."
They tossed about $500 onto the road. And a bunch of people stopped to pick it up, which caused a pretty serious safety issue.
Multiple people called 911 and said there were $20 bills blowing around on the highway. But luckily no one was hurt. And by the time police got there, all the money was gone.
It's not clear if the family could face charges for it. But one of them talked to the local news and asked to remain anonymous.
They said they did it to honor their relative's memory, and that it's a, quote, "Oakland thing."
