Ignoring Safety Aspects that Could Reduce Traffic Accidents


Safety on the road is an important consideration for every road user. There are various kinds of traffic signs that are can be employed, all of which are intended to discipline road users and improve their safety. However, Indonesian drivers frequently ignore these safety signs. This is particularly significant given the growing volume of vehicles in Indonesia – and as the number of vehicles has increased so has the number of accidents. This study uses quantitative research methods to explore this correlation and consider the consequences.
