The number of traffic-related deaths is up across the nation. But Reno Public Radio’s Anh Gray reports that figure remains steady in Washoe County.
Meg Ragonese is a spokeswoman for the Nevada Department of Transportation—or NDOT. She says the rate of traffic-related deaths in Washoe County remains the same this year.
“Through September 1st of this year there have been 22 traffic fatalities in Washoe County," Ragonese says. "Last year, there was the same amount.”
But Nevada overall has seen an increase.
