In Iowa and Nebraska, traffic fatalities are on the rise, and Nebraska’s Office of Highway Safety suggests that the extended bout of warm weather is to blame for the uptick. Nebraska has experienced 156 fatalities thus far in 2012, with one out of every five of those being incurred by a motorcyclist or a pedestrian. That fatality rate is higher than in the four years prior. Iowa had similar disturbing numbers, with 248 fatalities as of last week.
