Highways Accidents in Albuquerque
The frequency of automobile accidents has steadily risen over the past several years. There is also a greater number of drivers on the roads today than ever before. Sideswipe collisions make up the highest percentage of vehicle collisions. The blame for that lies in unequal measure between intricate and complicated street layouts as well as driver inattention. Sideswipe collisions occur most often in the outer lanes of highways and can take place at any time.
By their very nature, this kind of accident can be difficult both to predict and prevent. They are especially dangerous due to the fact that both drivers are typically moving at very fast speeds when these accidents happen.
