Since drunk driving or negligent driving cases are common events, lawmakers in New Mexico have made some strict laws for people who drive with children. New Mexico law requires parents or guardians to place their children in child safety seats. The law mandates that every child up to age 7, or below 60 pounds, should be in a car seat.
A car accident, whether in Albuquerque, New Mexico or elsewhere, can pose an equal amount of danger to the driver, his or her passengers, and other motorists. The after effects of such an event can last a lifetime and can include serious injury, considerable pain and suffering and possibly even permanent disability and death. That is why one should always try to avoid an automobile accident at all costs.
