Traffic deaths under 600 for 4th year

For four years in a row, Wisconsin traffic deaths were fewer than 600 in 2011.

Last year was the first time in 84 years that the state had seen vehicular fatalities under 600 for four years in a row; the last time being in 1924-1927. A total of 569 people were killed on Wisconsin roadways last year, seven more than in 2010 but 59 fewer than the state’s five-year average.

According to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, bicycle, pedestrian, and vehicular-related deaths slightly increased with motorcycle deaths decreasing by 18 percent. The director of DOT’s Bureau of Transportation Safety states that most of these deaths could have been avoided and that many of the fatal crashes were due to bad driving habits and poor decisions.
