Fatality Reports

The New Mexico Traffic Fatality Reports are updated monthly using the most current data available to NMDOT. Traffic crash fatality data are also available through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Fatality Analysis Reporting System  (NHTSA FARS).


NMDOT crash data is protected by federal mandate Title 23 U.S.C. Section 409 which forbids the discovery and admission into evidence of reports, data, or other information compiled or collected for activities required pursuant to federal highway safety programs, or for the purpose of developing any highway safety construction improvement project, which may be implemented utilizing federal-aid highway funds, in tort litigation arising from occurrences at the locations addressed in such documents or data.
