WisDOT: November Traffic Deaths Lowest Since WWII

Traffic deaths in Wisconsin this November were the lowest for the months since World War II, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.

Preliminary statistics from the DOT show that 41 people died in 37 traffic accidents in Wisconsin last month, which tied it with November 2008 as the safest month of November, in terms of traffic deaths, since World War II. The deadliest month of November occurred in 1973 with 110 traffic deaths.

State Patrol Major Dan Lonsdorf, director of the WisDOT Bureau of Transportation Safety, said the statistics show the increased efforts of police during the holiday season are working. “Traffic deaths are always tragic, but they can be even more painful for families during the holiday season,” Lonsdorf said. “To help save lives, hundreds of law enforcement agencies around the state will intensify their enforcement of safety belt and impaired driving laws during the Booze and Belts mobilization from December 10 to 18.”
