New Mexico Motorcycle Crashes
Thousands of motorcyclists are killed in car accidents every year in the United States, with the number of fatalities increasing year after year. Motorcycle riding is very popular in New Mexico, and many people enjoy riding their bikes all over the state. More than 80% of motorcycle accidents result in death or injury, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, with motorcyclists having a 27-fold increased risk of dying in a traffic accident.
In New Mexico, a motorcyclist is injured or killed every day. Despite a drop in other types of car accidents, motorcycle fatalities have been on the rise across the country. Riders have a higher risk of serious injury. Unfortunately, most drivers do not pay enough attention to motorcyclists. This contributes to devastating motorcycle accidents throughout New Mexico. In fact, contrary to popular belief, the majority of motorcycle accidents are caused by careless drivers who fail to comply with their legal obligation to share the road safely with motorcyclists. Motorists who are careless or reckless should be held responsible for their actions in a serious accident.
