    Abstract

    Seeking for accident prevention and not waiting until accidents occur and the black spot is formed, it is necessary to use accident prediction models and to implement safety improvement measures on the potentially dangerous road sections, thus, preventing the formation of new high accident concentration sections. The paper describes how to identify high accident concentration sections on roads using accident prediction models and the critical value of predicted accidents.
