Abstract : This research work presents reasonable details on drivers’ knowledge on road accident emergency numbers in Nigeria, with Abuja as a case study. The research results were obtained through administering questionnaires to randomly selected drivers at Nile university of Nigeria located along Jabi airport bypass road. A total of 250 questionnaires were distributed and 212 drivers responded appropriately. This value was arrived at using a published table for determination of the sample size. The correlation analysis result indicates drivers have little knowledge about the road traffic emergency number in relation with other seven parameters with correlation coefficient value of -0.03125, -0.0271, -0.100, -0.19365. Finally the paper gives some recommendation on how to further improve the safety on road accident victims; public awareness on what to do at accident scene; the need of a law on treatment of road traffic accident victims at every hospital similar to law of Compulsory Treatment and Care of Victims of Gunshots act proposed in 2009 and signed into law in 2017 by the federal republic of Nigeria; and need for unified emergency system that coordinate all emergency cases and direct them to appropriate agency for subsequent action. Index terms - Emergency Number, Traffic, Accident, Correlation
