Turns out the 70s were pretty lousy when it comes to traffic injuries and deaths in Minnesota.
We dug up this chart from the Department of Public Safety.
For as awful as it is to report on highway deaths like the ones Thursday in a work zone on I-35W, the reality is that deaths and injuries on the road have dropped dramatically over the years even as the population and miles driven have increased.
