Roswell is located in Chaves County with a population of approximately 49,000. It is the 5th largest city in New Mexico and is most well-known for a supposed UFO incident that occurred in 1947.
Aside from being well-known for this alien activity, the city is a center for agriculture with its main industry areas being irrigation farming, dairy farming, ranching, manufacturing and distributing, and petroleum production. Roswell is also home to the New Mexico Military Institute, Bitter Lake National Wildlife Refuge, and is located near Bottomless Lakes State Park.
Roswell is connected to several major highways including US Routes 70, 285, and 380. As a result, there is much motor vehicle activity throughout the area including trucks, motor vehicles, motorcycles, and buses.
Motorcycle Accidents in Roswell
Motorcycle riders, like bike riders, are in a vulnerable position on the roads. Not only are they “out in the open” in terms of the vehicle on which they are riding, but they also are smaller compared to the larger vehicles on the roads such as cars and trucks. As a result, when a motorcycle accident occurs, the rider and potential passenger have a greater risk of injury and even death.
Motorcycle accidents can be caused for a variety of reasons, and unlike the stereotype, it is not always the motorcyclists fault. Truck and car drivers can also be negligent in the operation of their motor vehicles causing a motorcycle crash.
These accidents can be caused by:
- Reckless or careless driving
- Failure to obey appropriate traffic signals
- Failure to check blind spots before switching lanes
- Lane splitting
- Distracted driving
- Driving while intoxicated or under the influence of drugs
- Poor weather conditions
- Poor road conditions
