Abstract

When the passive drivers meet with accidents, it seems painful. When miscreant drivers cause accidents one feels annoyed, and curses the nasty driver and also the system. Statistics promises help in at least one way- i.e. keeping the safe distance between the two vehicles. Statistically speaking, frequency/ probability of happening of accidents is inversely proportional to the distance. The distance forms a bell shape in normal stopping situations on the road. (parking is not normal). The significance is tested in a one tail situation. In this paper, after defining an accident, these are classified w.r.t severity. Statistically the several situations are modeled w.r.t erring situation, and the situations of failure (accidents) discussed. It is concluded that only safety habits and conformance to norms can avert the unfortunate situations.
