The most common causes of construction zone accidents are speeding, drunk driving, inattention, and distracted driving.
Although the flow of traffic is constricted, and typically slower in construction zones, they are still a hotspot for vehicle accidents. Highway 5 (I-5) through Sacramento is a frequent construction zone. With heavy equipment, signage and debris blocking the view, unclear or shifting lanes, and large numbers of people on the roadway, it can be extremely difficult for motorists to navigate through these construction areas.
The most common causes of construction zone accidents are speeding, drunk driving, inattention, and distracted driving. Vehicle accidents in construction zones often include head-on collisions – because someone is driving on the wrong side of the cones, and rear-end collisions – often caused by excessive speed and not enough stopping distance.
