A property owner faces a huge bill after an accident on a street that is known for high speed. This crash on Lead Avenue wasn’t the first one that he faced. The problem is ongoing and cars frequently bang into this property.
Jimmy Harper, who owns property in Lead and Columbia, faced more damage following the crash of an SUV that hopped the curb before landing on another car, damaging the car and part of Harper’s property.
Harper doesn’t know what was the reason for the crash but he does know that whoever was driving the vehicle didn’t stop around to apologize.
The car was abandoned and now he faces the damage.
The City of Albuquerque timed all stoplights along Lead and Coal, making them match up. The main goal was to make drivers slow down. The limit here is 30mph.
The city informed that they were planning on doing another study to see if this tactic was successful, but things got delayed because of the pandemic. They are also waiting to do the study when schools are back in session and people start to commute to work and school again, so they can have an accurate depiction of the traffic during the morning and evening rush hours.
If you were involved in an accident where the driver left and you have no party to blame, you probably wonder what to do next. Many people decide to cover the damages on their own, but you shouldn’t hesitate to seek legal help from an attorney.
