For most New Mexico’s motorists, driving is a part of everyday life.

In fact, most of us couldn’t imagine a life without driving. Yet, driving can be one of the most hazardous tasks of your day. On average in New Mexico, a motor vehicle crash occurs every 12 minutes, a motorist is injured in a crash every 30 minutes, and a person is killed in a crash every 24 hours. Luckily, there are a number safety measures you and your loved ones can take in order to ensure your traffic safety. Among these are following traffic laws and ensuring that all passengers are properly using a seat belt or child safety seat. It is equally important that teenage drivers as well as older drivers maintain a safe knowledge of best driving practices.

Additionally, more than 5.7 million vehicles on the road today have open recalls. Make sure your vehicle is as safe as possible. Check for recalls by visiting
