Fewer Wisconsin Traffic Fatalities than in Years Past

Posted on Wednesday, April 22nd, 2009 at 5:34 am    

The state of Wisconsin is currently enjoying a downward trend in the number of traffic related fatalities on a year to year basis. Last year had a total of 588 fatalities compared to 2007's 737 and 2005's 801.

This year seems to be following the trend with a total of 118 fatalities through April 20, compared with 2008's 140 deaths and 2007's 183 in the same time frame. Even with these drops in traffic fatalities, however, these numbers still need to fall further.
