Alcohol may be a factor in some commercial vehicle crashes

Everyone who has a driver's license in New Mexico has passed driver's training, which means they know that drinking and driving is against the law. According to the New Mexico Motor Vehicle Division, at least 40 percent of fatal crashes involve alcohol. While there's no figure about how many crashes with commercial vehicles involve alcohol, it's reasonable to believe at least some of them do. Combine alcohol with large blind spots and other risk factors, and it's clearly a dangerous situation.

Other times, a commercial driver may forget to look alongside his or her vehicle, leading to a crash into the driver in the next lane.
