Transportation has evolved greatly over time. With modern technology, the automobile industry has obtained new heights with respect to comfort, speed, efficiency and security. Despite improvement in technology, there has been increase in the rate of accidents. A large number of precious lives are lost because of road traffic accidents every day. The common reason behind road accident is driver’s mistake. It is essential to have effective road accident detection mechanism to save life. Data mining techniques are widely used for road accident detection. The main focus of this survey is to provide an overview of the literature in road accident detection with various techniques and approaches implemented in them, their merits and demerits etc. Comparison based on parameters is also done to prove the efficiency of the various road detection techniques and approaches. The comparison result shows the best road accident detection method
