On the problems of traffic accidents, though the insurance generates the effects on diversification of injury for a driver, it makes a rush driving through the depreciation of drivers' manner level by moral hazard. The fact do not only have problem in the point of raising risk of traffic accidents, but also it has problem of giving the psychological burden for the pedestrian. In this paper, on the major premise of the coexistence of a pedestrian and a car, we formulated the social mathematical programming to evaluate the optimal driver's manner level and Community Street. The programming consist of the drivers welfare introduced through the economic model included the system of insurance, and pedestrian welfare measured by CVM. When simulating the Community Street's design, we computed the optimal alternative of combination for the facilities and executing area on the supposed road network.
