Traffic fatalities decline sharply in Wisconsin

Wisconsin Department of Transportation’s Bureau of Transportation Safety director David Pabst said traffic-related fatalities in the state sharply declined to 530 in 2013 from 601 in 2012. There was also a 28% decrease in motorcycle deaths.

According to Pabst, the DOT’s mobile classrooms for motorcycle riders that deliver messages on the dangers of drunken and distracted driving had something to do with the decrease in motorcycle death statistics.

The number of fatalities from drunken driving accidents has yet to be compiled, but Pabst said that the average has been around 42% within the past five years.

Winnebago County Sheriff’s Deputy Erica Geschrei said that aside from local law enforcement authorities, they are working on including hospital and health department workers and school-based personnel in disseminating information cautioning drivers against drunken and distracted driving.
