Abstract

According to a study lead by Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM), the driver's attitude when on the road and road condition are the dominant factor of road accidents. It is undeniable that the drivers of this magnitude look lightly on the rules of the road that have been set by the authorities. The evidence is that many drivers who do not comply with the speed limit, especially when driving on the highway cause them to fail to control the vehicle when trying to turn to the right or to the left at the corner of the road. On the other hand, the risk for a person suffering from road accidents is higher when the corner at blind turn. This is because drivers have high probability to collide at blind turn as most people that not slow down at the corner will end up in road accident. Additionally, absence of light at the corner will add the probability as driver will assume that no car from front side and not slow down. This statement is further reinforced when statistics show that 13.2 percent of road accidents arising from the blind turn and condition of the road. In short, driver's negligence on the road and is a major contributor to road accidents. The road accidents in Malaysia especially in Selangor are quite high compare to others based on statistics given by Traffic sector, PDRM Bukit Aman. Based on the study conducted, it is proven that Electro-Strips can help to reduce vehicles speed hence reducing the rate of accidents to occur. This is because, before implementation of Electro-Strips, the average of vehicles speed at our targeted area is 46.7 km/h. However, after implementation, the vehicles speed is able to be reduced to 24.2 km/h. These findings proved that we have finally succeeded in reducing the vehicles speed by 48% which is much higher than our initially targeted indicators of 20%. To conclude it all, we are confident that our product named Electro-Strips is more effective and convenient to replace the existing road safety system in a mission to prevents accidents from occurring around a blind turn area.
