Intersection Crashes in New Mexico
Crossing through an intersection can greatly increase your risk of suffering serious injuries in a car accident. Despite only making up a small percentage of roadways across the country, intersections are involved in nearly 40% of reported car accidents. According to the Federal Highway Administration, there are nearly 2.5 million intersections reported annually, making up the second-largest crash category in the nation. Intersections are the site of nearly half of injury collisions and one-quarter of fatal accidents.
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.
