Abstract

The aim of this paper was to developed accident prediction model for unsignalised junction (access points) in Malaysia rural road. This research carried out quite number of surveys to observe traffic behavior including right and left turns from minor or major road and other road geometry characteristic. The dependent variable was modeled as accident point weighting and accident frequency. The research reveals that access point, motorcycles crossing from minor road, motorcar and motorcycle from main road, traffic light, road median, approach speed and vehicle gap, was found to be significance in the Model. The accident prediction model has a potential to improve considerably the quality of engineering aspect of accident reduction and prevention in Malaysia
