The traffic flow in arterial roads in Surabaya can enter or exit the arterial roads directly, without going through the frontage road in advance, so that it could potentially cause traffic accidents. Therefore, the relationship between the number of openings, speed and traffic volume, and its influence on the motorcycle accident is very important to be studied. To examine the effect of the access points on the motorcycle accident with arterial roads in Surabaya-Indonesia. Every addition of 5 access points per-km on the arterial roads effects the increase in the number of motorcycle accidents by 9.9%. The increase of speed has implications on the increasing number of accidents at each access point variation where any increase of the average speed of 5 km/hour, the number of accidents increases by 29.38%. Similarly, the increase in traffic volume is also affecting the increase motorcycle accidents which if the volume of traffic increases twice from the previous, the number of accidents will increase by 32.5% per year according to the model prediction. A recommendation for the action program of accident reduction related to the effect of access points is that the implementation of access points limitation policy and frontage road development strategy on the arterial roads especially for primary arterial roads.

    In India, traffic flow on roads is highly mixed in nature with wide variations in the static and dynamic characteristics of vehicles. At unsignalized intersections, vehicles generally do not follow lane discipline and ignore the rules of priority. Drivers generally become more aggressive and...
