Bicycle Accidents in New Mexico

Albuquerque, NM - Bicyclist Injured, Hit by Motorist on Central AveCyclists are subject to the dangers of the road, and even when they are wearing the proper safety gear, they just do not have the same level of protection in the event of an accident. Seven of the approximately 300 persons who died in car accidents in New Mexico last year were cyclists, according to the most available figures. In other words, that year in New Mexico, bicycles were involved in around 2% of fatal crashes. 

Even though bike paths and dedicated bike lanes are more commonplace nationwide and in New Mexico, bicycle accidents still happen often. When a cyclist is hit by a motor vehicle, the resulting injuries can be devastating. 

Sadly, many drivers still think that cyclists do not share the same rights and obligations as other drivers. Even worse, when a bicycle is on the road, many drivers do not even notice them. Bicycle-on-car collisions continue to happen and have increased every year, despite the growing trend toward improving cyclist safety, including the usage of helmets, accessible trails, glow-in-the-dark clothing, and lights.
