Abstract

National Transportation Safety Committee (NTSC) Indonesia mentioned that human aspect precipitated 72.73% of the total road accidents that occurred from 2007 – 2011. This study analyzed the road accident phenomena in Indonesia in 2011 – 2013 (21 cases) from human factors perspective in road accident. The goal is to uncover human factors issue in road accident investigation. Unit analysis is posed from road accident investigation report which has been investigated by National Transportation Safety Committee (NTSC) Indonesia in 2011 – 2013. The result of this study consists of two parts. First, data recording stands to be main issue in the investigation of road accident. Incomplete data record leads to misleading analysis of road accident investigation. Second, from unsafe acts factor: user road type and vehicle ownership are weak defense factors that contribute to road accident, while license type, driving experience, and fatigue are uncomprehensive data in unsafe acts factor occurred. Time, crash type, vehicle type, weather condition, light condition, and road condition are weak defense factors that contribute to road accident in precursors of unsafe acts factor. This result shows that precursors of unsafe acts factor in road accident in Indonesia has more weakness than unsafe acts as a barrier in road transportation to prevent more accident in road transportation.
