High-Speed Crashes in Albuquerque
A speeding driver is more than a risk to just him or herself. Excess speeds place everyone at greater risk of being injured in a serious collision. In New Mexico, speeding is incredibly commonplace, and the state ranks twelfth nationally for high-speed collisions according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. In 2018, a total of 9,378 people were killed by speeding drivers, resulting in nearly 25 deaths per day.
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.
