MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin's traffic deaths fell sharply in April.

Twenty-eight people died in crashes during the month, 17 fewer than last year and 16 fewer than the five-year average.

Traffic crashes in Wisconsin had killed 134 people this year by the end of April, also down from a year ago.

The numbers are preliminary. State transportation officials say drivers must buckle up to ensure safety and avoid violations.
