New Mexico Traffic Accidents

Albuquerque, NM - Major Motor Vehicle Accident on I-40 near Coors BlvdNew Mexico has seen its fair share of traffic collisions over the years. Though the majority of these end in only property damage, a percentage cause serious injuries and even fatalities. In 2021, approximately 470 people lost their lives in auto collisions in the Land of Enchantment. This represents a significant rise from 2019, when about 420 lives were claimed by car crashes in the state. 

Most of these crashes are caused by driver negligence. Specifically, New Mexico sees a large portion of its accidents happen due to impaired driving. Drunk/high driving is a severe problem in New Mexico, as it is in numerous other states throughout the country. Police in New Mexico have been working on implementing awareness campaigns concerning the dangers of intoxicated driving, however, people continue to sustain injuries in fatalities in crashes caused by impaired drivers.
