KANSAS--- The number of traffic deaths on Kansas roadways hit an all time low. The Kansas Department of Transportation reports 344 fatalities in 2013. That's 61 fewer deaths than in 2012, when 405 people lost their lives on state roads. KDOT officials attribute the drop to the construction of safer highways and the improvement of seat belt use. Despite the drop in fatalities, KDOT says the ultimate goal is to not have any traffic deaths in the state.
