New Mexico Speeding-Related Crashes
Speeding can greatly increase your likelihood of being involved in a car accident. When you speed, you increase the potential of losing control of your vehicle. Considering that high-speed crashes often cause injuries much more severe than low-speed collisions, this can be a potentially deadly combination.
9,378 people were killed by speeding motorists in 2018. Speeding is a dangerous habit practiced by far too many drivers in Albuquerque. Injured parties can recover lost compensation with the help of an Albuquerque personal injury lawyer.
