Enhanced Law Enforcement Campaigns & Reports

ENDWI 

According to statistics from the University of New Mexico Geospatial and Population Studies Traffic Research Unit, the number of alcohol-involved crashes in New Mexico declined by roughly 72% since 2000.  Research indicates that public education, combined with highly visible law enforcement, is a powerful tool in decreasing the number of people who drink and drive.

According to the University of New Mexico Geospatial and Population Studies Traffic Research Unit, in 2017:

  • 38.4% of all fatal crashes involved alcohol.
  • 4.5% of all crashes involved alcohol.
  • 29.2% of alcohol-involved drivers in crashes were aged 20-29.

BKLUP 

Seatbelts and child restraints (car seats and booster seats) save lives, and Safer is dedicated to efforts which increase their proper and consistent use.  According to the UNM Geospatial and Population Studies Traffic Research Unit, of the people who were wearing seat belts in crashes in 2006 in New Mexico, only 1.6% died or suffered an incapacitating injury, compared with 28.8% of those who were not belted.  Approximately 81% of belted crash victims were reportedly unharmed, compared to only 38% of unbelted occupants. 

The NHTSA reports that using child safety seats decreases the risk of death by an estimated 71% for infants and 54% for older children.
