High-Speed Crashes in New Mexico
Certain actions behind the wheel are more likely to result in serious injuries in the event of a crash. There are thousands of people killed in high-speed collisions each year, and speeding greatly increases the severity of resulting injuries in a collision. When drivers exceed the speed limit or travel faster than allowed by roadway conditions, they have impaired reaction time that makes them less able to avoid an accident. There were 9,378 people killed in high-speed crashes nationwide in 2018 alone.
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.
