State officials are crediting state efforts for driving down the number of highway deaths in Alabama

Officials are anticipating a 35 percent decrease since 2006 in the number of state trooper-investigated highway deaths in the state.

The decline represents about 300 people.

Beginning in 2006, several state agencies have focused on areas where there were a large number of fatal crashes.

As of last Wednesday, Alabama troopers had investigated 518 highway fatalities in 2009. That’s down from 800 in 2006.
