According to statistics provided by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, there were 67 deaths on Wisconsin roads in September. The Wisconsin D.O.T. says that this is about a 22% increase from the same time period in 2014. Death rates on Wisconsin roads have been trending down as a whole, but this spike is definitely worthy of consideration.
As with every year, the weather in Wisconsin will turn during the colder months, and road conditions will carry even more of a risk. Icy and snowy conditions require more attentive driving, so it is important to refrain from texting or checking your cell phone while behind the wheel. Keep your eyes on the road at all times, drive at reasonable speeds, and remember to always wear your seatbelt.
