The problem of long bended routes in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) is one of the annoying problems that harvest a big number of vitalities annually. The problem relays under the fact that these long bended route are in shortage for lighting because of its extremely high cost. Therefore, in this paper, a system will be proposed as a smart alerting system based on ZigBee sensor network. The proposed system targets the roads with weak lights at night time in order to reduce the number of accidents which may occur on such dangerous roads. A number of real experiments were conducted using ZigBee sensor nodes in order to test the efficiency and reliability of the proposed system. Through real experiments, it was demonstrated that the proposed system offers reasonable response time, and achieves low power consumption.
