Abstract

Due to increase of the urbanization and raising the number of the vehicles road traffic incident and delay time in traffic jam are the main concern of countries in all over the world. Due to this problem drivers face an elevated crash risk especially when drivers on freeway ramp interchanges compared with other sections of freeways. The definition of ramp was based on the type and number of lanes used by traffic to freeways. The vehicle accidents are prevalent on highway ramps because of over-speeding, related to the characteristics and circumstances of ramps. Site survey and observation has been done for each location to identify the road condition, adjacent environment and vehicle operations. SPSS is used to analysis the accidents that they are collected data from case study. Descriptive analyses are performed by output of the analyzing data of accident. Differences in accident rates are due to driver behavior, weather potential safety issues were identified at interchanges. Ramps are scheduled for auditing based on descending road speed limits.
