Abstract 
Introduction: Accidents are one of the biggest public health problems in the worldAt the same time, most young victims are in good health before the accident. World Health Organization studies indicate that in 2020 road accidents will be one of three of the three leading causes of death globally.
Materials and Methods: Due to selecting the inner-city route, this study identified the accident hot zones by the number-accident intensity index method in one year. The table of coefficients proposed by the state of Georgia was used to weigh the severity of the accidents (injuries, deaths, and damages).
Results: In this study, six spatial units were identified as hot zones ( 9/1% ), and 19 spatial units were identified as yellow zones ( 28/8% ); as. Finally, 41 spatial units ( 4100 meters from 6600 meters ) were identified as cold zones ( 62/1% ).
Conclusion: The most important ways to reduce traffic accidents include the review of traffic signs in terms of the number, size, location, height, and the installation of the speed breaker in the spatial units as hot zones, the construction of an underpass, and the structure of pedestrian bridges with embedding the escalator in some important routs ( hot zones ), developing a comprehensive and long– term training program for improving the driving culture, etc.
Keywords: Accident Severity, Spatial Hot Zone, Spatial Cold Zone
