New Mexico Car Crashes

Each year, millions of people suffer injuries in millions of car crashes in the United States. Approximately 6 million car wrecks are reported throughout the country per year that cause injuries to about 3 million people. Alarmingly, most of these crashes are preventable and caused by the actions of negligent drivers. 

In the past decade or so, negligent driving has become a serious issue in the United States. Drivers who are intoxicated, distracted, fatigued, and speeding cause the majority of reported car wrecks in the United States. Some statistics concerning negligent driving in the U.S. include: 

  • Speeding causes over 11,000 fatalities per year in the United States. 
  • Distracted drivers are responsible for around 400,000 yearly vehicle accidents. 
  • Intoxicated driving causes over 30% of fatal collisions throughout the country. 
  • Driver fatigue is behind about 100,000 annual auto accidents. 

Driver negligence is a dangerous and selfish behavior that is demonstrated by almost every single driver on the road at any given time. No matter how safe and mindful you are while driving, you can never predict the actions and behavior of the other drivers you encounter on the roadway. This is why it is so important to remain alert, aware, and awake while behind the wheel, as well as sober, so you give yourself the best chance at being able to react properly and get yourself out of a bad situation if a collision does happen.
