Fatal crashes in Austin/Travis County

I have been hearing quite a bit lately about how there have been an unusually large number of fatal automobile crashes in Austin this year, resulting in a total of 69 fatalities (as of August 19th). Terrence Henry (of KUT) recently did a story on this problem, and the City of Austin has convened the Vision Zero Task Force to figure out what policies to implement in order to prevent these deaths.
