Abstract

One of the biggest causes of death in the world is caused by land transport accidents (ATL), involving vehicles, according to the world health organization. This article presents an application of the multicriteria methodology for ordering preventive actions in the Nordeste region of Brazil, considering traffic accidents involving fatal victims. Through the database of the Federal Highway Police on traffic accidents in the year 2018, it identified the State of Bahia that had the highest absolute number of fatalities. The PROMETHEE II method was applied to the collected data and resulted in the ordering of preventive actions that should be incorporated by decision makers. It is expected that emphasis should be placed on intensifying traffic enforcement in the State of Bahia, as in 2018, there were 83 deaths caused by speeding, representing 18% of the data collected involving fatal victims in 2018. In addition, undue overtaking and non-activation of the lighting/signalling system represented 9.6% of the deaths that occurred in 2018. Therefore, decision-makers will be able to define strategies, actions and measures to improve traffic safety.
