Traffic Deaths Down Last Year

Traffic deaths fell across most of the nation last year, dropping in at least 42 states and Washington, D.C. as Americans sharply reduced their driving due to high gasoline prices and the down economy. Twenty-five states and the District of Columbia had double-digit percentage declines in traffic fatalities, according to preliminary data provided to USA Today. Connecticut only had a 1% decrease, while Rhode Island had a 3% decrease.
