Most people are stressed out and overstrained after accidents even if no one is hurt. Consequently, they may face some difficulty in reporting the accident to the police and civil defense, or they may provide them with inaccurate information about the location of the accident. Moreover, even if they were able to provide the necessary information it may take them some time to deliver it to a human counterpart and hence it will take the police and civil defense more time to reach the accident location in the appropriate time to rescue people. This paper proposes the use of location based services to develop a system that can be used easily to report and locate an accident more quickly and precisely.
