High-Speed Crashes in New Mexico
Speeding is a predominant factor in deadly car accidents across the country. In 2018, a total of 9,378 people were killed in high-speed crashes, accounting for nearly 26% of reported roadway fatalities that year. A report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration revealed that New Mexico ranked twelfth in the nation or high-speed crashes. Nearly one-third of traffic fatalities over the past twenty years involved speeding drivers.
