Passenger safety is one of the basic principles of traffic engineering and transportation planning, so that in developed countries, along with the development of other traffic engineering sections, attention is being paid and, by conducting studies and analyzes, attempts are made to crash and resultant consequences Minimize it. The present research studies the application of data mining in identifying incident points. The study area is 15 km from the Haraz road. The collected data from the police information technology unit of Navarra was analyzed using SPSS Modeler software using data mining method. The results show that the three points of the Goznak, the Wana and Shanglunn tunnels are part of the accidental areas in this area. In order to reduce accidents in this axis, it is suggested that the geometric modification of the accidental points, as well as the dual-tracking of the road and the consideration of lightning, be put on the agenda of the relevant organizations.
