Abstract

Despite numerous campaigns on road safety for the university population, driving attitudes off campus is often reflected on campus. Thus, the paper reviews the literature on why traffic congestion and accidents occur on campus with a focus on drivers' attitudes. The scope of the investigation will be the students, staff, and other university stakeholders who regularly drive on campus. The approach for this paper is more of a literature review with narratives and descriptions of the campus topology. The analyses and interpretations of the literature were through systematic identification of themes and variables which will be discussed in the paper.

Keywords: Campus traffic; Driver attitude; Transport system planning; Driver behavior
