Albuquerque Motorcycle Crashes
Motorcycles are much more vulnerable to being killed or seriously injured on the streets of New Mexico. Statistics show that motorcyclists are nearly 27 times more likely to be killed in an accident. In 2017, 5,172 motorcyclists were killed in vehicle collisions across the country.
Every day, a motorcyclist is injured or killed in New Mexico. Not only are riders more likely to be seriously injured, but most drivers also don’t look out for motorcyclists like they should. In fact, most New Mexico motorcycle accidents are caused by other drivers.
