Road Safety is one of the crucial subject in transportation engineering. This study deals with the estimation of crash risk index for urban Arterial Street by safety levels considering Accident. Accident analysis covers the 8km stretch with 9 locations, in which the more accidents are occurs. The traffic classified volume count, spot speed, gradient, Road width, footpath width, geometrical conditions are the factors affecting the accident. Traffic accident data for three years (2013-2015) are used in development and testing the model. The regression model of Risk index i.e. an estimated score to rank the sites by using different road features is developed with R2 value and t vale using the above parameters.
