Accident Statistics in Construction Zones

Work zones increase the likelihood that dangerous accidents will happen, and when the work zone is poorly designed, poorly executed, or poorly maintained, the danger increases.

The Most Common Types of Work Zone Accidents

The most common work zone accidents fall into one of three categories.

Rear-End Collisions

Work zones often lead to increased traffic congestion, which – in turn – increases the risk of rear-end collisions. Motorists, however, are responsible for driving safely in relation to the condition of the road, which includes accounting for traffic congestion. Rear-end collisions in work zones tend to be caused by motorists who are speeding and/or tailgating.


Work zones constrict the space in which motorists must maneuver, and they can also contain obstructions to clear views and can be difficult to navigate in general. All of this can increase the risk of sideswipe accidents happening. Driver distraction can also play an important role, with texting being both the most common and the most dangerous culprit.

Collisions with Stationary Objects

Work zones, by necessity, have a lot of equipment involved, including road barriers, signage, heavy machinery, and more. Another common form of work zone accident is collisions with these objects, which can be a function of a poorly designed, executed, and/or maintained work zone and/or driver negligence.
