Wisconsin traffic deaths are down by about 15-percent this year – partially because of all the rain and cool temperatures we’ve had. State D-O-T crash analyst Don Lyden says the weather has kept motorcycles at home. As a result, 43 people have been killed this year in Wisconsin motorcycle mishaps as of Tuesday – down from 61 at the same time in 2012. Overall, the Badger State has had 333 traffic deaths from New Year’s Day through July 30th. That’s 52 fewer than the previous year.
