This survey was carried out in the Province of Nord-Ubangi, precisely in the city of Gbado-lite between 2014 and 2017 from the observations made about the behavior of road users, of survey questionnaires submitted to the target population and the statistical data collected by the road circulation police (PCR) as well as the agency of the National Society of insurance (SONAS) city of Gbado-Lite. We supposed that the rate of accidents recorded in the city of Gbado-Lite would be raised. To verify this hypothesis, we resorted to the analytic method accompanied by the documentary technique and questionnaires. The findings showed that most road users facilitate the move of female sellers but there are several disadvantages to this mode of transportation which worries the local population. This bad behavior of road users causes several road accidents. Thus, prevention measures have been proposed in order to reduce the traffic accident rate. These findings confirmed the hypothesis of the current study. In conclusion, the rate of circulation accidents known by the road users is still increasing, however the means for their prevention are nearly non-existent that it is more that imperious to dedicate some efforts there in order to put them in place.
