Road signs and markings are an integral part of the transportation systems which are logically designed and employed to provide essential road information for commuters' safety and protection. The study is an evaluation of drivers and passengers' awareness regarding road signs and markings along Maharlika Highway in the Province of Nueva Ecija particularly between the cities of San Jose and Cabanatuan. While drivers understanding and perception of road signs and markings were very substantial in the study, the perceptions of common passengers wereadded, because they are generally the victims of road accidents. A total of 100 drivers and passengers from the locality were surveyed based on a 4-point Likert scale ranging from strongly disagree (1) to strongly agree (4). The findings showed thatdrivers were aware and knowledgeable about road signs and markings but did not strictly abide by it. Passengers, on the other hand, were not very much aware of road safety features like road signs and markings and relied heavily on the capability of drivers since they believe that drivers were following rules and regulations onroad signs and markings.
