The importance of traffic laws is undeniable because it is designed to protect both the lives of the drivers and passengers. Having sufficient knowledge of rules on the road and much more on practicing those rules make a driver skilled and would surely minimize the accidents or crash on the road. This study was accomplished with the objective of determining the knowledge and level of compliance of the tricycle drivers on traffic rules and regulations in terms of Ten Commandments of traffic, pavement markings and, traffic signs/signals and islands in Cabanatuan City which is known as the Tricycle City of the Philippines. With the objective of gaining new insights with the current situation in the said subject, the researcher used a descriptive research method. The respondents of this study were the 100 driver–members of selected Tricycle Operators and Drivers Association (TODA) in Cabanatuan City who were randomly chosen from different barangays. It has been found out in this study that the motorists are knowledgeable in terms of the traffic rules and regulations but on the contrary, they are not always compliant. Based on the results of this study, the researcher suggests the refurbishing of the driver licensing system and the strict implementation of the existing laws on road traffic management.
