Through the in-depth accidents analysis, the study found that the accidents in the Ampara police area mostly occurred during the year 2015 significantly, and the trend of accident has been increasing continuously in the same period due to many reasons such as recklessness of the driver, negligent of the driver, indiscipline driving, lack of knowledge on road rules and regulations, a speeding, not wearing the safety belt and helmet, pedestrians not following road rules, not knowing the meanings of the different road signs markings signals etc. However, this study need to be extended in future in the study region as well as in the other parts of the Island in order to explore more or different causes and factors that determine the ratio of road accident accordingly.
