A report released Tuesday shows south Jersey's roadways were
less deadly in 2012 than they were in 2011.
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.
The South Jersey Traffic Safety Alliance says that there are
many factors leading to the overall decrease.
Despite the decrease in deadly accidents, pedestrian
fatalities in the area actually increased from 13 in 2011 to 18 in 2012.
