One of the possibilities to proactively solve problems of high numeber of traffic accidents and their negative impacts is an in-depth clinical analysis of accidents. This method is based on objective identification, analysis and then improvement of sites of frequent traffic accidents.

It consists of their systematic classification for use in practice, for design and implementation of transport-security measures, than of raising awareness of responsible government authorities, policy, car manufactures and car accessories, road managers, and other responsible stakeholders.
