PARIKH VAIDEHI ASHOKBHAI,  DR. A.M.JAIN
In today's world, road and transport has become an integral part of every human being. Everybody is a road user in one shape or the other. The present transport system has minimized the distances but it has on the other hand increased the life risk. The rate of accident in developing countries like India increases year by year. To reduce this adverse effect of transportation the work towards road safety is become necessary now a day. The paper is having two main goals: To carry out road safety audit for reducing vulnerability of accident in the main corridor of urban area and To develop the accidental model taking time of accident as main parameter. To achieve these goals the black spots are identified based on accident detail of stretch selected. For this research paper the study area selected is corridor of Narol to Naroda national highway-Ahmedabad city of Gujarat state.
Keywords- Transportation, Road Accident, Black Spots, Road safety, and Road Safety audit.
