Roadway deaths under 600 in 2011

In 2011, car-related fatalities in Wisconsin were under 600 for the fourth consecutive year.

According to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, 569 people died on state roadways. This number is seven more than in 2010, but 59 fewer than the state’s five-year average. The last time Wisconsin had traffic fatalities under 600 was 84 years ago, from 1924-1927.

Motorcycle deaths dropped by 18 percent, down from 103 to 85. Unfortunately, pedestrian, bicycle, and car-related fatalities slightly increased.

The director of DOT’s Bureau of Transportation Safety states that there is no specific cause or factor for the decrease in traffic deaths, but claims that most of the fatal accidents were caused by irresponsible driving habits and bad decisions.
