August was Wisconsin's deadliest month of the year so far for traffic fatalities.

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation said Wednesday that there were 69 deaths in August. The second-highest month of 2014 was June, with 50 fatalities.

Officials said August has been the worst month for the last five years, but this year was even higher than the average.

Since a high number of motorcycles will be on the roads in the fall, officials are asking drivers to share the road and watch carefully. They also urged all motorcyclists to wear helmets.
