In 2013 we had more fatalities in January than in 2012, but fewer in February. The Daily Traffic Report shows a decline of 10 fatalities, so far this year. In January, 84 people died. I reviewed each of their crash reports and discovered that 10% of fatalities involved alcohol, 10% involved the drugs and 61% died when the vehicle left it's lane or the roadway. In February, 51 people died on our roadways. Crash reports have not been posted yet for all, so data will be available at a later time.
