Traffic Deaths Increase in Wisconsin

This year has been a dangerous one for drivers on the roads in Wisconsin. 

Traffic fatalities have surpassed last year’s numbers. 

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation says that 520 people have died on the roads this year.  That’s 65 more compared to this time last year. 

Those numbers include 75 motorcyclists, four motorcycle passengers, 52 pedestrians and 15 bicyclists that have died. 

The Wisconsin DOT says that 45 people were killed in traffic crashes in November. 

Four people died during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend alone. 

However, last month was the fourth safest November in terms of traffic deaths since World War II.  

The deadliest November was in 1973 where 110 people were killed.
