A recent report from WalletHub points to Albuquerque being a rather dangerous place to drive.

The report compared America’s 100 largest cities in four different categories related to driving. These categories are: safety, traffic & infrastructure, access to vehicles & maintenance and cost of ownership & maintenance.

In most of the categories, Albuquerque was near the middle of the pack. The one big exception to this was the safety category. Unfortunately, Albuquerque was almost at the very bottom in this measure. It was ranked 98th for safety, with only Detroit and St. Louis being behind it.

Albuquerque’s poor safety rank was a big contributor to it being ranked 76th in the report for how good of a city it is, overall, for drivers.

Do you see Albuquerque as a dangerous place to drive? What do you see as the biggest safety hazards out on the city’s roads?

Being exposed to safety hazards by careless drivers can lead to motorists getting seriously hurt. After suffering such injuries, most people want to ensure that the same kind of thing doesn’t happen to someone else in the future. They may also need compensation to cover their medical expenses and time away from work. 

Getting fairly compensated can help an injury victim with avoiding financial hardships in relation to a motor vehicle crash. Challenges sometimes arise when it comes to the pursuit of such compensation. For example, car crash victims may encounter difficulties with insurers. Skilled personal injury lawyers can help auto accident victims in Albuquerque and other parts of New Mexico with navigating such challenges.
