The number of auto accidents in Kossuth county dropped, from 464 in 1954 to 437 in 1955, but total valuation of property loss and personal injuries increased from $252,880 to $309,665 during the same period.* There were 54,877 accidents reported in the state, 4,008 more than during 1954, and total property loss arid personal injuries amounted to $28,924,024, compared with $27,638,779 in 1954, which prompted Safety Commissioner Clinton Moyer^to state "this is an almost incredible outline of general public indifference to the total problem of public safety." With the present accident death rate far ahead of the record at the same date in 1955, it seems probable the 195U record will be even more tragic than in previous years.
