Speeding-Related Crashes in Albuquerque
Speeding is far more than an innocent action. In fact, excess speeds can greatly increase your risk of being involved in an auto accident. Over the past twenty years, nearly one-third of reported roadway fatalities have involved speeding drivers, with thousands of people dying annually in high-speed collisions in the United States. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, New Mexico ranks twelfth nationally for speeding-related accidents.
Car crashes in New Mexico are caused by a variety of roadway hazards, such as poor driving, excessive speed, unsafe road conditions, poor truck maintenance, road construction, and inadequate signage.
