Independence Day is One of the Most Dangerous Days on the Road in New Mexico and Throughout the Country for Motor Vehicle Crashes
Independence Day is about our Nation’s quest for its own sovereign state. Our ancestors fought hard for the rights we enjoy today and built this country literally on blood, sweat, and tears. Today is so much more than fireworks, BBQ, and spending time with friends or family. It is about our country, our military, and our rights. To that, the Caruso Law Offices, P.C. wishes all a happy and safe Independence Day.
Unfortunately, we know that many Americans will be injured or killed today. This is simply due to the volume or drivers on the roadways. Officials have already estimated that there will be a record summer for travel this Independence Day. This is one of the busiest travel days for the summer and low gas prices spur to the increase in traffic. With an estimated 44 million people to travel this July Fourth, there will simply be more traffic accidents because there will be more people on the road. This means more inexperienced drivers, more drivers not knowing where they are going, and more distracted driving. This also means more drugged or drunk drivers on the road.
Here at the Caruso Law Offices, P.C., our Albuquerque personal injury lawyers know that Independence Day is a very dangerous holiday on the roadway for Americans as we have represented those injured or killed in holiday travel. Large commercial truck accidents, motorcycle crashes, and other vehicle collisions are common. More people will be injured or killed in motor vehicle accidents today than almost any other day.
