Reckless Driving Crashes in New Mexico
New Mexico drivers are some of the most reckless in the country. The state is fifth in the nation for careless driving cases. Human error contributed to a total of 21,894 car accidents reported in the state in 2015, and another 6,602 were caused by drivers who failed to yield the right of way. Recent reports have found that nearly 90% of reported car accidents are attributable to human error, with 30% involving reckless driving. The most prevalent form of reckless driving in New Mexico is driver distraction, which has increased greatly in recent years.
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.
