As the earth is becoming a virtual globe, the advancement in technology can be used to save lives that are lost in accidents due to belated help. Accidents occur for a variety of reasons like swerving off because of pets, sudden failure of internal mechanism in automobiles, distraction caused bysudden noises and sights, unseen object shadows in night time and the list goes on. In this paper we suggest a system incorporated into street lamps or lamp posts that identify accidents when they occur by use of Feature Extraction technique. The system on analysing an accident alerts the nearby medical personnel and law enforcement by the presence of Global Positioning System embedded in it. In this method we can ensure that lives are saved by timely help at the Golden Hour. In addition, the lamp posts can be interconnected to form a network and each lamp posts covers about some particular distance in 3600 direction. Basically designed for road traffic accidents, this system also has the possibility of identifying other crimes that occur in streets and alerting the law enforcement to it. By incorporating the system in lamp posts we can ensure that it is allocated to nearly all human inhabited areas thereby assuring timely help in case of emergencies.
