Abstract: 
Background & Aim: More than 1.26 million people are killed each year as a result of road traffic crashes. Most of the road traffic fatalities occur in low and middle income countries. WHO reported that in 2020 more than 2.34 million people will be killed due to road traffic accidents. With study of pattern of road traffic accidents, we are able to prevent or decrease many of these fatalities.
Materials & Methods: This is a cross-sectional study which is done with cooperation of Isfahan Legal Medicine Center. In this study Record of the deceased who died of accidents from 1381 to 1382, and their cadavers were brought to different Isfahan Legal Medicine Centers for issuing burial permit, were examined and for every one of them a checklist was prepared. After data collection they were analyzed with software spss.
Findings: Between 2002 to 2003, 1446 people died because of road accidents, 1202 (81.3%) of them were men and 244 (16.9%) were women had. The most frequency of mortalities was in motor cyclists, the age range of 16 to 20 years and the final cause of death was head injury. The least frequency belonged to bicyclists.
Conclusion: The consequences of this study was not so much different specially from developing countries except for bicycling which has more mortality rate in other studies, whereas it has less mortality rate in our country, that is because of bicycle usage is less common in daily transportation of Isfahan.
