Materials and Methods: This project has been practical in state of goal and also survey- descriptive in state of execution. And its statistical society has been all the drivers passing highways that 240 car drivers and 60 truck drivers were chosen by simple random sampling method, and evaluated by questionnaire.

So based on these outcomes, it can be concluded that there is a meaningful connection between crashes, fine bills and maximum speed.
