Prediction of road traffic accidents and finding solutions to them are important for prevention. It is needed to build accident models well and to understand parameters causing accidents exactly, in order to provide effective prevention. Different parameters are needed to be analyzed for understanding various accidents in different zones. In this study road traffic accident records in different zones are analyzed and parameters are classified for decreasing entropy. Casualty class is tried to be related with parameters over these classes.
