Amongst various health and risk associated issues, Road safety is also now treated as a Public health problem as per the recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO). This is so particularly due to a significant increase in the number of traffic injuries. Pakistan is adversely affected by the problem of fatalities. It is the common practice that issues of crash prevention is not given consideration in the context of strategic planning. The safety issues are only dependent on imbalanced Police data governing general cause over speeding which is surely not at all. The research focuses on the operational model for mega city Karachi. The idea is designed to emphasize the trends including severity in road crashes, victims, and major arterials. The idea integrates a connection between Engineering and Management with the help of an exemplary system and provision of suitable infrastructure. Different year’s data record is manipulated only to hit way forward actions that can be chosen for prevention. On the contrary, mathematical justification is provided to correlate the Trauma surveillance model as a guideline in recommendations. The overall balance of research is maintained on the basis of ground realities and data modeling.
