Abstract: 

Introduction: Every year, a considerable amount of Iranian national resources are squandered due to traffic jam disorganization. In Iran, car accidents take the second place after heart attack in the ranking of major causes of death. Engineering, education, and enforcement are the three pillars of traffic management. Needless to say, two of the previously mentioned factors (i.e., education & enforcement) directly point to human behavior and the way it is controlled. In fact, users of routes who are people including drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians are the paramount factors in traffic equation which needs to be guided and controlled with a full understanding. Abnormal traffic behavior of some users of transportation systems is one of the reasons of an increase in the rate of traffic problems in various routes. Such a condition is contrary to the urban principles of smart growth and sustainability. Studying traffic anomalies, as a symbol of traffic etiquette in the society, can guide urban planners toward making correct decisions. The present study aims to determine the geographical distribution of traffic anomalies in Mashhad and find a logical link between geographical features of various districts and their rate of traffic anomalies.
