The main objectives of this study are: to identify driving behaviors and mistakes that drivers make; based on a questionnaire, which may cause traffic accidents in Jordan and highlight their effect on traffic safety. Also, to develop traffic accidents regression prediction models. Also, to propose effective countermeasures to reduce the frequency and severity of traffic accidents. The analysis is based on the questionnaire by using SPSS software to predict accident rates and compare the results…

Compliance, practices, and attitudes towards VTIs (Vehicle Technical Inspections) in Spain: What prevents Spanish drivers from checking up their cars?
TLDR
The findings of this study support the idea that more actions are needed to increase drivers’ awareness of the relevance of VTIs for road safety, as well as warning them about the dangers of neglecting vehicle checking beyond merely punishing measures.
On the Digital Forensic Investigation of Hit-And-Run Accidents
TLDR
An algorithm that reconstructs the likely traveled routes of a driver by mapping the distances and turns caused by traveling the actual route onto the street network of the area in which the trip took place is introduced and can be used to discover risky driving maneuvers at any point of a trip.

Travel Time and Delay Study to Improve Public Transit Systems in Jordan
TLDR
There is a major difference in travel time between using the public transit system and using the private car, and it was found that delay and travel time can be reduced to a practical and reasonable value by decreasing the number of times that the bus stops for pickup and discharging the passengers, using small buses, and by using newer, faster models of buses.
