Accidents are not natural but they are caused' is a common Cliche in the area of traffic Safety. Thus, if Accidents are caused by someone surely, ones responsible for could be identified and appropriate remedial measures developed and implemented to the extent feasible. The investigation is carried out to identify and analyze accident black spots in the study area. This study identifies the reasons for accidents that may be due to the improper geometric design, vehicle condition, and driver

The model is developed using accident prediction model as a modelling technique and also to reduce the Fatality Rate in the study area.
