Abstract

The number of accident in sixteen (16) Perak districts is increasing every year. Looking into the Ipoh - Lumut Highway, there are some places which are prone to accidents. It is important to pin point which places and/or situations are dangerous, and why they are dangerous. The objective of the study is to determine the locations prone to accident, identify the causes of accident and to propose a suitable countermeasure for the problem. Road Safety Audit (RSA) is a relatively new road engineering technique aimed at identifying potential safety problems during planning and design of projects. Applied to existing roads, RSA can identify potential safety hazards before they become accident prone locations. In road safety analysis apart from producing the most accurate prediction from statistical figures, the need to visualize information geographically using GIS is essential. Traffic engineers, planners and decision makers need as much information as possible in diagnosing the cause of traffic accidents before deciding the appropriate countermeasure. The scope of study for this report is specifically highlighting the selection of the location that is prone to accident, the causes that led to the problem and to propose suitable countermeasure. The project covers for Perak Tengah and Manjung District which focuses at six prone locations. The GIS is used for road safety diagnosis involved site characteristics analysis/field observations, accident analysis, accident data statistics, behavioral observations, surveys of road-users characteristics, and identifying and recognizing relevant variable. The project is to analyse the pattern in accident prone location and to prevent more accident to happen.
