The highest total of crashes were 45,906 since 2017 and 405 fatalities were the highest since 2016. This seems to indicate that safety regulations & traffic laws in New Mexico either aren’t as effective as we’d hope, or that truck drivers, their employers (carriers), or other drivers are practicing unsafe behaviors. New technology in trucking safety will help mitigate damages, prevent injuries or collisions altogether, but for the victims and their families the problem seems to be escalating.
