It was a relatively safe month of July on Wisconsin roadways. Figures released by the DOT show last month tied with July of 1946 for the lowest number of traffic deaths since World War Two. In all, there were 49 fatalities stemming from 47 traffic crashes on Wisconsin roads.
That’s up three from 2009, which was the safest July on record since the DOT started keeping records.
Through the end of last month, 303 people have died in traffic crashes in the Badger State, up six from the same period last year and 72 fewer than the state’s five-year average.
