Good news and bad news when it comes to traffic safety. Fewer Oregonians died in traffic crashes in 2010 compared to the year before. But more pedestrians were killed on Oregon roads. In 2010, 62 pedestrians died, 39 the year before. Shelley Snow with ODOT says the increase does not correlate traffic growth. The good news: the number of people who died in car crashes is the lowest its been since 1945. 325 fatalities were documented by ODOT in 2010, a 13% reduction compared to 2009.
