Abstract

Road accident is a critical problem which has to be prevented in Malaysia. Road accident has gives negative impact on the Malaysia's economy where the government spends a lot of money for road safety awareness campaign. There many factors cause road accident such as road user behavior, vehicle defect and environmental factor. The objectives of this study are to analyze on road accident statistic from Pekan to Kuantan as well as to evaluate road safety level of these two roads Federal Route 3 and State Route C17 that linked Pekan to Kuantan. In achieving these two objectives, first road accident data from year 2006 to 2009 were obtained from Traffic Branch Kuantan, Royal Malaysian Police, Pahang Contingent. The data was then sorted by using Microsoft Excel 2007 and analyzed using SPSS software to obtain statistic value. The data were sorted according year, months, location and by types of day. Tables, histograms, graphs and pie chart have derived to show the statistic pattern. The correlation analysis done to determine the critical period of time, period of month and type of days in F3 and C 17 road. Based on the results, it shows the F3 road is not safe to be taken during weekend from 6.00 am to 11.59 pm from January to March. Meanwhile, road C17 should not be taken during weekday from 6.00 pm to 11.59 pm from October to December. In future, the analysis should be adjusted by using data by type of injuries, type of vehicles which involved in road accident and location by KM post. Since this type of data is too confidential to be given by traffic police, hence this study was done based on total number of accident occurred from Pekan to Kuantan. Furthermore, some details are not clearly mentioned in the data given by traffic police for example the location of the accident occurred. Therefore, some of the data have been eliminated from the analysis.
