Motor vehicle accidents of all kinds are common throughout the state of Wisconsin. This includes situations in which two or more vehicles collide, as well as when a pedestrian is struck. Fortunately for the state as a whole, traffic fatalities continue to decline, reaching levels that have not been experienced since 1944.
In 2013, traffic fatalities reached their lowest mark since the end of the second World War. And according to data from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, 2014 is off to an even better start, with accidents declining five percent through the first six months of the year, when compared to last year.
