The report released by the South Jersey Traffic Safety Alliance shows Atlantic, Cape May, and Cumberland Counties had a total of 62 motor vehicle fatalities in 2012, down from 81 fatalities in 2011.  Atlantic County saw the largest decrease with 16 less fatalities in 2012. Half of the fatalities in the region occurred between the months of May and September.
