High-Speed Collisions in New Mexico
Speeding is a predominant factor in deadly car crashes across the United States, and it is a significant issue for roadway safety in New Mexico. Exceeding the speed limit or traveling faster than allowed by the roadway conditions can greatly impact the ability of the driver to safely operate their vehicle. Traveling at high speeds means drivers have decreased reaction time and need much longer to come to a complete stop.
In 2018, a reported 26% of total traffic fatalities were caused by speeding drivers. There were 9,378 reported roadway deaths that year involving high-speed collisions. That is an average of nearly 25 people being killed daily by speeding drivers. Over the past two decades, speeding has been a factor in roughly one-third of reported traffic fatalities in the United States. This is because speeding magnifies resulting injuries while also increasing your likelihood of being involved in a serious collision.
