Bicycle Accidents in New Mexico
Around 45,000 cyclists sustained injuries in a collision with a vehicle in the year 2015, according to statistics. While each incident is often unique, research has found that the majority of bicycle accidents that end with fatal injuries happen along a roadside as opposed to an intersection. It is important to recognize how bicycle accidents in New Mexico are commonly serious because of the lack of protection at the time of the collision.
