George Lee, CEO at Highways Term Association said the research highlights the problem with driver behaviour.
He said problems were increasing in their severity before describing the reality of highways teams needing to contend with the public as “disconcerting”.
Mr Lee hopes the research will help bring around a change in driver behaviour towards road workers.
He said: “‘At HTMA, through our Health, Safety & Wellbeing Group, we’ve pushed for many years to raise awareness with the general population and the authorities, of the threats to the roads workforce and to tackle road works incursions and abuse.
“I hope that by continuing to highlight the danger, through the likes of this public research that Amey has commissioned, a change in motorists’ behaviour will be brought about.”
