Abstract: The severity of traffic accident in Riyadh is investigated. An attempt was made to compare property damage only (PDO) accidents with severe accidents in order to analyze the nature of severe accidents and determine their characteristics so that some remedies can be recommended. A total of 1774 police reported accidents was collected in a systematic random manner for the period of 1996 through 1997. Analysis using various test statistics was conducted to compare the two categories of accidents. Improper driving behavior is the primary cause of accidents and the young drivers are most often the victims. Also, the taxis and pick up trucks are in high risk of being involved in accidents.
