One of the systems that have been implemented to ensure that the roads are achieved the required standards of safety is Road Safety Audit (RSA). RSA is a formal safety examination of an existing and new road by an independent or qualified team.

The focus of study is traffic flow and control which includes the study of traffic signal installation, general traffic management, cross-section and intersection (sight distance). For the RSA inspection, the field study is conducted at Jalan Berapit, Bukit Mertajam which includes the data collection of traffic volumes, spot speed, site inspection and qualitative research questionnaire.
