Traffic death count stays lower than 600 for fourth straight year

The fatality count in Wisconsin has stayed below 600 for the past four years. It has been 84 years since the last time this has happened.

In 2011, 569 people lost their lives in traffic crashes. This is seven more fatalities than what was recorded for 2010, but overall the 2011 amount was lower than the five-year state average. The data is comprised of vehicular accidents as well as pedestrian and bicycle accidents.

According to a director at DOT’s Bureau of Transportation Safety, there is nothing that can directly be attributed to this decline in deaths. The high gas prices could have caused less vehicles to be on the road in 2011 but traffic crashes are usually caused by reckless driving habits.

Car accidents can leave a person severely injured. If you were injured in a car accident due to a reckless driver, please contact the Sheboygan reckless driving attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier, S.C. by calling 800-242-2874 today.
