Motor vehicle fatalities

Earlier this year, I talked about the troubling rise in fatalities from motor vehicle crashes. It started to slow down for a while during the summer, but as of 5:30 p.m. today, Kansas City has seen 60 people die in automobile crashes this year, versus 52 at the same time last year. That's a 15 percent increase, and something we should all prevent from getting any higher.
