Abstract

The traffic accidents threats humans live and its increases during the time. For this reason, this paper tries to analysis the traffic accidents by assessment of accident situations. Also, study the effect of road design elements and regulations coincide with case study in two methods applied first the five parameters individually tested. Then effective parameters tested together, correlation between accidents and the parameter, the roads and streets must design carefully and according to specifications and criteria. In this paper trying to indicate the weak points of road network and fixing this points to avoid them in the future. The ring road have a negative aspect because it extends the path and collecting local roads more than the straight paths. Also, restriction of sight distance occurs, the topographic of Erbil city is helpful in avoiding vertical curves, but the horizontal curves presented with concentric ring roads.

The paper examines the role played by road transport in the distribution of public facilities in a rural environment in Nigeria. Development of rural transport networks has suffered neglect in comparison with urban road networks in the country. This has in no small measure affected the provision of essential public facilities to rural dwellers. The data used were collected through mapping and surveys of the nature of road network and available public facilities in the study area. The results of data analysis showed that the area has a poorly connected road network characterised by poor surface condition, narrow bridges and many bends. The level of provision of public facilities is also low. In order to establish empirical relationship between road network development and distribution of public facilities in the area, regression technique was used. The analysis showed a strong relationship. The study concludes by making recommendations for the federal and state governments' intervention in road network development in the area and providing more facilities to make life better for the people.
