Road Traffic Accident is a very serious problem in every country of the world. In Second Global High Level Conference on Road Safety which held in Brasilia of Brazil in 2015, as per the Brasilia declaration, India have to halves the deaths and injuries along with accidents by 2020 but India is lacking in this target because India has diversity in its topography so we cannot consider same factors for whole nation. We cannot control this problem as a whole so we have to start from a small level. To control this problem, risk factors of each and every area should be identified. This paper is a small effort to identify the risk factors of accidents in Roorkee Urban Region which is located in Uttarakhand so that the remedial measures can be proposed to avoid accidents in this area. Also an attempt has been made through a small survey to know the background of road users in Roorkee. This paper also represents year wise analysis of accidents, number of persons killed, and number of injuries in Uttarakhand of last ten years from 2009-2018.
