Abstract: Studying the assessment methods of environmental factors which affect traffic safety has a great significance to prevent traffic accidents and ensure the safe driving. The article establishes the assessment system of environmental factors in prevention the traffic accident, based on the analysis of the present research on traffic safety and followed the general principles of assessment index selection. The weight of every index is determined by applying AHP method, moreover, a comprehensive assessment model based on environmental factors is built by means of the theory of fuzzy comprehensive assessment. The mathematical assessment model is easy to operate and could assess the contestant object more comprehensive, objective and precisely.
