Maine Highway Deaths Down 4th Year in a Row

August 8, 2011

Highway deaths in Maine are down for the fourth year in a row.

The Bureau of Public Safety says 61 people have died on Maine roads so far this year. That’s down from 88 deaths at this time last year.

Thirteen motorists were killed in July, barely half the 25 who were killed in July 2010.

Highway Safety Director Lauren Stewart said motorists are driving less because of the tough economy and high gasoline prices.
