Traffic deaths in Wisconsin in February averaged one a day, making the 28 deaths in 2013 the fifth-safest February on the road since the end of World War II.
The Department of Transportation issued its monthly traffic death report by news release on Thursday.
The 28 deaths, which happened in 23 crashes, were eight fewer than the 36 deaths in February 2012 and four less than the five-year average for the month.
Through the first two months of 2013, 69 people have died on Wisconsin roads, nine fewer than in 2012 and one more than the five-year average.
The safest February since World War II was in 2011 when 22 people died on Wisconsin roads, and the deadliest February was in 1968 when 73 people died in traffic crashes.
