According to the City of Austin 2012 Traffic Fatality Report, Austin had 78 traffic fatalities in 2012 – that’s a 42 percent increase from 2011. Alcohol and drug impairment was a contributing factor in more than half of those fatalities, and excessive speed contributed to 32 percent of these crashes.
While Austin officials are doing what they can to make roadways and intersections safer, carelessness and negligence will continue to be a threat to motorists, cyclists and pedestrians in our city and state.
