Understanding New Mexico Law When a Drunk Truck Driver Causes a Trucking Accident on St. Patrick's Day
St. Patrick's Day was yesterday which is a renowned holiday for celebration, particularly with libations. But some people may not be able to partake because they have to work. This includes truck drivers, some who have been driving for days to delivery cargo across the country. One common hub for truck drivers is in New Mexico, particularly in Albuquerque with the interstate exchange. Unfortunately, some truck drivers do not care about the state laws and federal regulations which prohibit them from driving before a shift or while driving. When a truck driver decides to enjoy St. Patrick's Day by drinking and then hops back into the cab of a truck to finish a delivery, it could put all of us at risk for a very serious and fatal New Mexico trucking accident.
