Abstract

The major roadways in Namibia, B1 and B2, have a high number of road accidents. To address this problem, the team organized and analyzed road accident and traffic volume data collected from 2013 to 2015 to identify the most hazardous roadway sections and road stretches. The team then performed both statistical analysis and site evaluations to determine the common causes of accidents. Finally, the team proposed both stretch-specific and long-term recommendations to improve road safety, and suggested directions which future work can focus on.
