New Mexico Intersection Collisions
Intersections are a magnet for serious car accidents across New Mexico, and the majority of these crashes are caused by drivers who fail to yield the right of way. Statistics show that nearly 61% of intersection collisions involve drivers making left turns. According to the Federal Highway Administration, there are nearly 2.5 million intersection crashes reported each year, accounting for roughly 40% of reported collisions. Around half of injury crashes and one-quarter of deadly collisions occur at intersections.
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.
