New Mexico Pedestrian Accidents
Thousands of pedestrian collisions take place in New Mexico each year. Despite laws meant to protect pedestrians, drivers are often more focused on other vehicles rather than those walking the streets. This means that many pedestrians go unnoticed and are struck by inobservant drivers.
Pedestrian fatalities have been rising in New Mexico in recent years. These deaths are often attributed to distracted motorists. When a pedestrian is struck by a motor vehicle, the resulting injuries can be catastrophic.
