An estimated five cyclists are killed in New Mexico annually after being involved in a crash with a motor vehicle. Many of these victims experience serious head injuries or broken bones. These crashes happen in many places, but intersections are a common site of bicycle crashes.
Nearly 70 percent of fatal bicycle crashes are due to serious head injuries. Cyclists are more susceptible to being seriously injured due to the lack of safety provided to bicycle riders.
