Yearly, thousands of families are devastated due to serious car crashes in New Mexico. About once a half hour, a New Mexico car crash is reported to officials.

Driver intoxication and speeding are two other commonly seen causes of car accidents in the United States. Driver negligence causes a higher number of yearly auto accidents than car problems and inclement weather combined.
