Reckless Driving Crashes in Albuquerque
Reckless driving is a serious safety issue in New Mexico. Across the nation, reckless drivers are involved in an estimated one-third of reported roadway fatalities, contributing to nearly 13,000 fatal crashes on average. Statistics reveal that nearly 90% of reported collisions are caused by human error, and reckless drivers are involved in around three out of every ten car accidents. New Mexico ranks fifth in the nation for careless driving accidents according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
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.
