Elements that makes the traffic system, environment, vehicles and human, also represents integral part of any resulting accident. In addition to numerous improvements of vehicles, expansions and improvement of road infrastructure, the number of accidents have been increasing. The main culprit, human, who, with the participation of 57% (when combined with other factors accounts for more than 90%) of accidents, is the weakest link in the chain.  This work covered and explains numerous human factors at which we can affect. The new Law on Traffic safety was taken in consideration. Analysis of accidents in function of the   drivers age was conducted. The goal of measures, which have been proposed for suppression and prevention, is declining and reducing negative trends.
