Road traffic accidents is the leading cause of death by injury and the tenth leading cause of all deaths globally. It has now made up a surprisingly significant portion of the worldwide burden of ill health. These accidents involve not only in large area, but also happen in campus. Due to this situation, this study is conducted to identify the most important factors that contribute to road accidents in the campus and also to provide solutions that might help in reducing the road accidents. To meet the objectives of this study, 387 respondents were randomly selected among the students and staff at Universiti Teknologi MARA (Pahang), focused on the main campus, Jengka. The SPSS 20.0 software used to analyze the data include descriptive, normality test, correlational analysis and independent t-test. From this study, it can be concluded that the high number of road accidents occurred in the campus are majorly caused by the current traffic system implied in the campus area. To overcome this problem, the recommended solutions are to implement more systematic road signage, two main gates and one-way street. For future research, the effectiveness of the suggestions listed will be measured to achieve zero road accident in the campus.
