Abstract

The number of road incidents which result to deaths, injury, disabilities and loss of property is frightening. In Tanzania, the major contributor of road accidents is human factor which account for 74% in 2010. Vehicles' over-speeding is named to be one of the accelerating factors to the increase of road casualties. The existing measures to limit over-speeding has not shown major contribution to the road safety as there are only countable inspection points with speed radar guns as a way to limit over-speeding. This paper discusses the adoption of ICT for tracking vehicles and proposes the model for tracking in real time vehicles' over-speeding in Tanzania.
