New Mexico Wrong-Way Accidents
There are a few reasons a driver may travel in the wrong direction. In some cases, the roadway design is confusing, causing drivers to enter a one-way road in the opposite direction. However, a majority of wrong-way drivers are intoxicated, accounting for 58% of all wrong-way crashes.
80% of wrong-way crashes happen in urban areas. These crashes overwhelmingly involve passenger vehicles. Always be vigilant on the road and look out for dangerous drivers like these in order to protect yourself and others.
