Muhammad Nuruddeen Isa, Nuruddeen Isa


This study analyzed factors responsible for road accidents along Kano-Kaduna-Abuja dual carriage way. Category Model was used for the primary data. The results obtained revealed that huge amounts of financial and human resources were lost due to road traffic accidents along the route. Our results revealed that the explanatory variables are jointly significant in explaining factors that are responsible for accidents. However, changes in family income did not significantly explain reasons for accident on the selected route. It was further discovered that lack of routine repairs, maintenance and the existence of potholes are responsible for crashes on the highway. It was recommended that the relevant ministry and its agencies should always effect repairs on bad portions of the highways. Driver’s education and sensitization should always be strengthened and enforced to ensure compliance for proper driving habits.
