The road traffic accidents are becoming alarming in the Philippines. The number of fatalities increasing day by day is a real challenge for all concerned agencies to prevent it. Thus, this study aimed to develop an Arduino-Based Speed Limit Detector that will buzz motorcycle drivers exceeding a speed limit of 60 kilometers per hour. The system will automatically send SMS to the nearest Traffic Management Unit in order to reprimand drivers violating the policy. The study also determined the applicability and usability of the system to the Traffic Management Unit of Sagay City, Negros Occidental. The researcher used the descriptive developmental method of research in achieving the desired objectives. Rapid Prototyping model was used during the system development while the criteria in Mc Calls Software Quality Model was used to test the system according to its usability, applicability, and efficiency. As to the system's efficiency, a rating of 4.56 was given by the IT experts interpreted as Very Good. In terms of usability, the Traffic Management Unit of Sagay City rated the system with 4.50 interpreted as Very Good while the overall applicability of the system earned a grand mean of 4.36 interpreted as Very Good. The Arduino-Based Speed Limit Detector with SMS Support will be presented to the Office of the Sangguniang Panlungsod (law-making body) of Sagay City for the possible creation of an ordinance to implement and utilize the developed system.
