Car Crash Fatalities Have Risen Since Onset of Pandemic in Wisconsin

On behalf of Peterson, Berk & Cross, S.C.

At the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, transportation officials hoped the decrease in traveling would lead to less car crash fatalities. However, according to David Pabst of the State of Wisconsin Department of Transportation’s Bureau of Transportation Safety and Technical Services, the number of fatalities has risen. 433 individuals died in Wisconsin car crashes through September 30 of this year. During the same time frame in 2019, there were 414 fatal car crashes. The most common traffic conviction in Wisconsin this year was speeding.
