Traffic deaths fell slightly in Wisconsin in February.

Twenty-eight people died during the month, eight fewer than last year and four fewer than the five-year average. Sixty-nine people had died this year by the end of February, also down from a year ago.

State transportation officials say the numbers are preliminary. They're still determining if all the deaths were directly caused by crashes.
