New Mexico Car Crashes

Every year, more than 6 million auto collisions are reported in the United States. These accidents happen for many different reasons, ranging from car problems and bad weather to driver error/negligence. Unfortunately, negligent driving has become the main reason auto collisions occur throughout the country. Each day, more than 7,500 people suffer injuries in auto collisions across the US. Alarmingly, most of these are the result of negligent drivers.

Driver negligence happens in numerous ways. Fatigued, intoxicated, distracted, and speeding drivers cause millions of people to sustain injuries every year and tens of thousands to lose their lives. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that over 100 people are killed per day in auto collisions in the US. The NHTSA also reports that over 90% of reported American car crashes are the result of driver negligence. This means that more than 90 people die every day because of negligent driving. 

New Mexico is familiar with auto accidents. The Land of Enchantment sees approximately 45,000 car accidents each year that injure over 20,000 individuals and take the lives of approximately 400.
