In Korea, the number of traffic accident deaths has been steadily decreasing due to continuous efforts to reduce traffic accidents, but it is still at the lower level among OECD countries, and active efforts to improve road safety are needed. To this end, it is necessary to prepare proactive road safety measures by developing a surrogate index that can measure road safety using big data in the road safety field. In this study, it was suggested through spatial analysis that Heinrich's law can be applied to the road safety field, and a road safety surrogate index was developed using DTG(Digital TachoGraph) data. Based on the results of this analysis, a strategy to improve traffic safety was presented by using not only police accident data, but also residents' opinions and big data in related legal plans. In addition, if the comprehensive traffic safety policy project is stabilized after the pilot project is implemented according to the legal plan, it is necessary to prepare a legal basis for systematically promoting the system.
