New Mexico Motorcycle Accidents
Riding a motorcycle is a wonderful pastime for many New Mexico residents, but a motorcycle leaves its rider extremely exposed in the event of a collision. For this reason, riders are much more likely to suffer from fatal injuries in the event of a collision. In fact, nearly 80% of motorcycle crashes end in death or injury according to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Not only that, but motorcyclists are around 27 times more likely to be killed in a crash.
Motorcyclists are injured or killed in collisions across New Mexico each day, and motorcycle fatalities have been increasing across the United States, while the overall rate of collisions has been on the decline. Not only are motorcyclists more likely to suffer severe injuries, but most drivers fail to look out for motorcyclists that share the road, resulting in devastating motorcycle collisions across the state. In fact, contrary to popular belief, the majority of motorcycle crashes in New Mexico are caused by the actions of reckless drivers who fail to safely share the roadway with motorcyclists as they should.
