In fact, excessive or unsafe speed is a factor in an increasingly large percentage of all serious injury and fatal collisions. With many vehicles traveling a speeds in excess of 70-75 miles per hour on a major highway like I-25 or I-40, when collisions occur, they are often deadly.

Common Causes of Accidents on New Mexico Highways

Although fewer car crashes occur on major, multi-lane highways because traffic moves in the same direction with no intersections, highway travel presents different dangers.

Common causes of highway accidents in Albuquerque include the following negligent actions that leave a driver liable for damages:

  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • Making unsafe lane changes
  • Failure to properly merge from an entrance ramp
  • Tailgating
  • Weaving and other aggressive driving habits
  • Drowsy driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Tire blowouts
  • Debris in the roadway such as truck tires
  • Failure to reduce speed in highway construction zones or inclement weather conditions

In less common highway accident claims in Bernalillo County and all of New Mexico, the at-fault party may be the manufacturer of a defective auto part or a negligent highway maintenance agency.
