Traffic accidents are an important transportation problem in several major Indonesian cities, especially Makassar City.

Based on these results, male victims, adults victims, senior high school educated victims, the driver victims, double accident type and side collision were very dominant variables affecting traffic accidents rate. The proportion of victims who had an accident was male, 72.3%. The portion of accident victims in adulthood 52.9%. While the percentage of accident victims with high school education is the highest proportion of 55.7% compared to other levels of education, the driver victim has the highest probability of experiencing minor injuries with a risk of 62.6%.
