Serial Drunk Driving is Dangerous
Santa Fe, New Mexico (August 14, 2019): A New Mexico man was recently arrested for what is now his twelfth DWI. While no one was injured because of the man’s reckless driving, that doesn’t excuse driving under the influence in the first place. New Mexico takes driving under the influence seriously, yet sadly, the land of enchantment has a serious problem with drunk drivers.
In 2015, 30% of fatal accidents involved someone at or above the legal BAC limit.
On the whole, New Mexico drivers are ranked quite close to the bottom when it comes to the skill and safety of its drivers. This lack of precaution by drivers is thus exacerbated by those who make poor decisions and drive on the road while impaired.
