June traffic deaths down from 2013

With 49 fatalities in 45 Wisconsin traffic crashes, last month was the second safest month of June in terms of traffic deaths since the end of World War II, according to preliminary statistics from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (DOT). The safest month of June occurred in 1946 with 45 fatalities, and the deadliest was in 1956 with 115 fatalities.

Traffic fatalities last month were 12 fewer than in June of 2013, and nine below the five-year average for the month of June. Through the first six months of this year, a total of 215 people have died in Wisconsin traffic crashes, including 32 motorcycle drivers, three motorcycle passengers, 18 pedestrians and one bicyclist. Traffic deaths through the first half of this year were 11 fewer compared to the same six-month period in 2013 and 29 fewer than the five-year average.

“While overall traffic fatalities are down slightly, we have seen 35 motorcyclist deaths through the first half of this year, five more compared to the same period last year,” said David Pabst, director of the DOT Bureau of Transportation Safety. “To prevent crashes, drivers must share the road and watch for motorcycles especially at intersections and while making turns or changing lanes. Drivers frequently misjudge the speed and distance of an approaching motorcycle because of its smaller dimensions. They need to check the position of a motorcycle at least two or three times before they proceed through an intersection or make a turn. For their part, motorcyclists must obey speed limits and other traffic laws, never ride impaired, and they should always wear protective and conspicuous clothing and gear, including a helmet that meets or exceeds US DOT standards. Tragically, nearly three out of four motorcyclists who died in crashes last year in Wisconsin were not wearing helmets.”
