Samenvatting Accident database with essential information can greatly enhance the level of success of a road safety programme. In many countries, the textual format of accident database in the form of chart/tabulation has generally limited the implementation of an effective and efficient accident reduction programme. One possible reason was due to the lack of a high quality spatial data that is commonly used to associate with the textual data in order to apply timely and appropriate treatment. The main objective of this project is to harness the latest technology of Geographical Information System (GIS) in enhancing road safety in Singapore. As the result, an accident analysis software named as Traffic Accident Analysis Module (TAAM) was successfully developed by capitalising on the advantages of GIS-based latest technology. TAAM has now been widely used in road safety programmes in Singapore such as Black Spot Programme. With an extensive database under a computational efficient platform, TAAM is ready for next stage of development of a predictive capability of accident model with local characteristics. (A).
