TABUK2 Identification, assessment & enhancement of accident date collection & analysis in KSA

  It has been estimated that the annual cost of traffic accidents in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) exceeds 6 billion US dollars, in addition to other social, health, and economic impacts, such as disability, rehabilitation, and unemployment due to traffic accident injuries. Tabuk city KSA, has a high accident rate. There are not many studies, if any, in Tabuk for the investigations and development of a framework for accident reduction.   The main aim of this project is to propose a framework to study, assess and enhance accident data collection and analysis in KSA. A proposed framework for accident reduction by integrated processes will include risk identification, risk assessment and risk reduction processes. If implemented, the proposed framework will improve data collection processes and analysis and will identify the hot spot locations, along with accident severity.
