Abstract: - In some countries where the economies are weak, it becomes crucial for those concerned with developmental policies to adopt approaches which will ensure that every single cent available is used to develop the country. In those fields to facilitate a conductive environment for economic development. Road traffic accidents have been recognized as one of those adverse elements which contribute to the suffocation of economic growth in the developing countries, due to the high cost related to them, hence causing social and economic concern. So Traffic safety is an important key and integral role in sustainable transportation development areas. Now days, the main negative impact of modern road transportation systems are injuries and deaths in road accidents. The success of traffic safety and highway improvement programs hinges on the analysis of accurate and reliable traffic accident data. This study discuses the present state of traffic accident information on NH-58 from Meerut to Muzaffarnagar in Uttarakhand State. It shall also discuss the Identification of high rate accident Locations by using GIS Software and safety deficient areas on the highway. So, implement the remedial measures to those accidental locations (Black Spots) and provisions for traffic safety.
