The Wisconsin Department of Transportation has announced that for the fourth consecutive year, traffic fatalities in the state have been under 600. The last time that this happened in Wisconsin was between 1924 and 1927.
In 2011, 569 people died in car accidents across the state of Wisconsin. In 2010, there were 562 fatalities, but the 2011 amount is still lower than the five-year average by 59 deaths.
Motorcycle accidents dropped as well in 2011. There were 85 motorcyclists who lost their lives in 2011, compared to 103 who died in 2010. Although, it is a good thing that the number of traffic fatalities is on the decline, there are still numerous fatalities that can be avoided if people are more aware of their surroundings on the road.
