High-Speed Crashes in Albuquerque
Speeding is a common factor in deadly car accidents across New Mexico. A report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration found that the state ranks twelfth in the nation for high-speed crashes. Across the country, thousands of people are killed by speeding drivers each year. In 2018, speeding was involved in nearly 26% of reported traffic fatalities that year, resulting in the deaths of 9,378 people.
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.
