TDOT: More Than 600 Have Died On Roadways In 2012

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Tennessee Department of Transportation said more than 600 people have died on state roadways so far this year.

As of Thursday, the number stood at 603. That number is tragically high, but it's not much more than last year.

At this time in 2011, 569 people were killed in traffic accidents in Tennessee.

In May, TDOT began running a daily roadway fatality count on Interstate message signs. The signs also have targeted safety messages reminding motorists to wear their seatbelts, obey the speed limit, and to not text and drive.
