New Mexico Drowsy Driving Crashes
Most people understand the dangers of drinking and driving. However, drowsy driving can be just as dangerous. There is a lack of awareness about the risks of drowsy driving, and it is a common sight in New Mexico.
Nearly 40% of drivers admit to falling asleep behind the wheel at some point during their lives. Just like drunk driving, drowsy driving results in reduced reaction time. This can be extremely deadly in the event of a collision. Injured victims should protect their legal rights by contacting an experienced attorney following an accident.
