Abstract –Now-a-days Most of the Accidents are caused by Heavy vehicles in National Highways (NH). The drivers of the heavy vehicles are addicted to drinking. Drug-abuse and addiction by drivers is another major cause of accidents. Under the influence of liquor they indulge in rash driving. They drive their vehicles at top speed. They cause road accidents. To avoid accident due to DRUNK AND DRIVE an alcohol detector is used, if the driver consumes alcohol and tries to drive the vehicle this sensor detects the gas that sends an ALERT message to the driver and automatically switch OFF the vehicle. Headlight of vehicles poses a great danger during night driving. The drivers of most of the vehicles use only high bright beam while driving at night. This causes the discomfort to the person travelling from the opposite direction and therefore a sudden glare for short period of time. To avoid such incidents a prototype of automatic headlight dimmer the Visible Light Communication (VLC) is used to dim the headlight. The drivers travelling at night may fall sleep and leads to accident. An Eye Blink sensor is used to alert when the driver falls sleep.
