Fatal Motorcycle Crashes in Albuquerque
In New Mexico, motorcycle riding is very popular, and many people love riding their bikes around the state. Unfortunately, these vehicles place drivers and passengers on the road at greater risk, leading to an increase in fatal motorbike crashes across the country. In the case of an accident, motorcycle riders and passengers are highly vulnerable. Motorcycle accidents are vastly overrepresented in countrywide traffic mortality for these and other reasons.
Over 80% of motorcycle accidents result in death or injury, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, with motorcyclists having a 27-fold higher chance of dying in a traffic accident than those in passenger cars. Thousands of motorcyclists lose their lives annually in vehicle collisions across the United States, with more and more deadly crashes taking place year after year.
