To control the accident highway department have placed the signboards. Increasing number of accidents at busy junctions are a major threat faced by today's world. Nowadays people are driving very fast; we lost our valuable life by making small mistake while driving In this paper we are controlling the speed of two wheelers. This paper is composed of two separate units: zone transmitter unit and receiver unit. Once the information is received from the zones through zigbee, the vehicle's embedded unit automatically alerts the driver, to reduce the speed according to the zone, it waits for few seconds, and otherwise vehicle's speed control unit automatically reduces the speed. The effects on speeds and speed distribution were studied in a large scale field trial with an in-car system for speed adaptation in the city of Lund, Sweden. In the trial 290 vehicles were equipped with an "active accelerator pedal" and a data logger for a period of 3–11 months. Data was logged in each test vehicle during the whole trial and was analyzed for 3 one-month periods: Before activating the system, after short time use and after long time use. The results showed significant reductions in the speed level. Further research is needed in order to investigate possible behavioral adaptation effects when the system is active as well as inactive and how driver behavior would be influenced in a situation where a large part of the vehicle fleet is equipped with an active accelerator pedal.
