Speeding-Related Accidents in New Mexico
Speeding is a predominant factor in fatal traffic accidents across the United States. Over the past twenty years, high-speed collisions were involved in roughly one-third of reported traffic fatalities. Speeding greatly impacts the ability of the driver to safely operate their vehicle due to decreased reaction time and increased stopping distance. In 2018, high-speed crashes were involved in roughly 26% of roadway fatalities. There were 9,378 people killed by speeding drivers that year, an average of 25 people dying each 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.
