Participants are assigned to write ideas and prototype tools or other applications to minimize the risk of accidents in driving. Jasa Raharja held a Youth Innovation Contest with the theme “Traffic Solutions to Prevent Accidents for Youth” as one of efforts to minimize the risk of accidents, where according to a source from the Indonesian National Police, every hour there are 3 people die due to the road accidents in Indonesia. There are 3 factors that cause traffic accidents including 9% vehicle factors where this is related to roadworthy technical requirements, 30% environmental factors related to infrastructure, and the last and biggest factor is the human factor at 61% where it is related to the ability and character of the driver.
