India is a large country, and highways play a significant role in the country's development. The national highway system is responsible for the country's civilizational and economic development. As the world's population grows, so does the number of vehicles on road. As the number of vehicles on the road grows, so does the number of accidents. As a result, there must be reduction is accidents proving the safety of roads. Accident causes can be divided into two categories: subjective variables and objective elements. Subjective considerations primarily refer to the psychological effects of drivers and pedestrians on roads, whereas objective factors refer to road conditions, road geometry, and other engineering-related aspects. Because they are intertwined, the research of accidental black spots revolves around the study of road safety, and if road safety is addressed, the number of accidents is likely to decrease. So, the identification of Blackspots and improvements to the specific locations in terms of geometrics of road. Indian National Highways are thus to be engineered considering all these inputs related to safety and design standards. All of these aspects were considered in a critical review, which depicted the scenario of accidents occurring on various Indian roadways, as well as their causes and solutions.
