Intersection Collisions in Albuquerque
Intersections crashes are incredibly common in large cities like Albuquerque. Busy drivers who are traveling through congested roadways are often not focused enough on the road around them, and this can be particularly dangerous while crossing an intersection. Intersection crashes account for nearly 40% of reported crashes each year, with 2.5 million intersection collisions occurring annually. These accidents are responsible for around one-quarter of reported roadway fatalities.
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.
