Traffic accidents are one of the big problems of modern society. The social damage caused by the traffic accidents are increasing. So, there have been a variety of research analyses to predict the traffic accidents. But there are few studies to predict the frequency of traffic accidents. In this paper, the modeling proposes applying the Markov chain modeling to predict the traffic accidents. In this paper, it is expected that the proposed traffic accident prediction modeling to predict the number of traffic accidents.
