Abstract—Accident statistics show a relatively low level of traffic safety in Jordan compared to developed countries producing large socio-economic losses. The number of accidents has increased five old-fold between 1995 and 2009 reaching 122,793 in 2009 with an estimated cost of JOD 336 million ( equivalent to about $504 million). This study investigates the present and future magnitude of road traffic accidents in Jordan in order to provide a better understanding of the road safety trauma and assist strategic planning and optional allocation of resources. Potential countermeasures are identified and evaluated by examining the attitudes of road users toward the effectiveness and favorability of these measures.

Index Terms—Accident costs, countermeasures, Jordan, Road user attitudes.
