Though 2013 is not yet over, there has been a dramatic decrease in the number of fatalities on New Mexico roads. As of the end of November there has been a 16% reduction in the number of accident related deaths when compared to a similar time period from 2012. While this is a commendable improvement, The Szantho Law Firm is challenging residents of New Mexico to continue and expand on the gains in 2014.
“This is positive news,” begins Andras Szantho, founder of the Szantho Law Firm, “any reduction in the number of fatalities means that more families are whole and together. However, we can do better. The three largest contributing factors to deaths on our roads are all things that we have the power to change.”
Driving under the influence, inattention behind the wheel and excessive speed are cited most often as top contributing factors to fatal accidents in the most recent annual crash report. Combined they account for almost two-thirds of traffic deaths in New Mexico.
“New Mexico drivers could create vast gains in traffic safety by enacting a few simple changes in their driving habits,” says Szantho. “Therefore I challenge all drivers to reduce their speed, pay attention to the task of driving when behind the wheel and never drink and drive.”
