Moped Accidents in New Mexico
Motorcycle passengers and drivers must be kept safe at all times. Motorcycle-related traffic deaths are disproportionately high across the country due to these and other variables. Almost 80% of motorcycle accidents, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, result in death or serious injury. Motorcycle riders, according to the study, have a 27-to-1 fatality risk advantage over passengers in passenger automobiles.
Every day, a motorcyclist is injured or killed in New Mexico. Motorcycle fatalities have been on the rise across the country despite an overall drop in other types of car accidents. Riders are more likely to be seriously injured. Unfortunately, most drivers fail to look out for motorcyclists like they should. This contributes to catastrophic motorcycle accidents across the state of New Mexico. In fact, despite what some people may think, most motorcycle accidents are caused by the actions of reckless drivers who are not fulfilling their duty to share the road safely with motorcyclists. Negligent motorists should be held accountable for their role in a serious accident.
