An automobile moped vehicle at right hand side consists of front tire brake and accelerator so at braking time the accelerator is remain stuck and accelerator is not fully zero So difficulty in braking. Our project on reduction in road accident and at braking time accelerator assembly is disconnected means accelerator is zero therefore increase in safety. At high speeds under panic situation or emergency braking conditions, it is not possible to fully engage front brake lever and twist the throttle to neutral position at the same time because our hand can’t do three things at time. i.e. (exert brake lever Pressure, release throttle in fraction of second, maintain grip on accelerator handle). This engages front and/or rear brake partially and doesn’t let go off throttle action fully. As result braking distance considerably increases so occurs the road accidents. Our team idea is to when front and/or rear tire brake is applied then the accelerator is zero automatically. This possible when the brake applied and accelerator assembly is disconnected.
