Impact of Traffic Law Enforcement on The Rate of Road Accidents
 
The impact of traffic law enforcement on the rate of road accidents can be assessed by studying the correlation between the total number of challans & the number of road accidents for different time periods. It may be hypothesized that if the enforcement strategies are correctly targeted then there should be a high negative correlation between the two sets of data. Simply put, this means that if our Challaning process is appropriately targeted then more challans should lead to fewer road accidents.

The table given below shows the correlation between monthly challan figures and the number of final road accidents for different time periods.
