There are various traffic issues that have been happening in the campus areas. The issues are such as the air and noise pollution, lack of road safety and regulation implemented by the campus communities, increasing number of road users and more. All these problems may lead to severe injuries when road accident happened especially among the motorcyclists. Therefore, initiatives and action need to be taken in order to reduce severe injuries due to road accidents. The objectives of this study are to gather knowledge regarding motorcycle safety as well as advisory system, and the information collected are then coded to develop the computer-based application advisory system which is then verified, validated and evaluated in order to reflect the acceptance of the end-user. The method adopted in this study was divided into several phases such as data gathering, development of computer based advisory system and the verification, validation and evaluation of the advisory system. Two methods of gathering data which are by literature review and through domain experts. The system is built by using Microsoft Visual Studio with Visual Basic language. The verification phase is a process in determining whether the system confirms a specification, while validation phase inspects the system to see if it meets the specifications and expectations of users. As for the evaluation phase, the system is evaluated by the non-expert human user. The developed advisory system is called as Motorcycle Safety Advisory System (MSAS) and it is useful for different categories of end users especially the students. Development of MSAS includes 4 main windows which are Homepage, Library, Advisory System and About. Each windows provides various buttons that are coded to its respective functions. The system is considered to be verified when the knowledge engineer satisfy on the programming works and the system’s design. MSAS is considered valid when the suggestions in MSAS present in the answers provided by the expert evaluators and the result shows that the suggestions for factor 1 and factor 3 from both MSAS and expert evaluators are similar by 67% and 50% similarities for the second factor which is vehicle condition. The validation phase is done through Google Form and the result shows that most of the ratings are four and five. Out of all six aspects, none of the aspects rated below than 4. Overall, more than 60% of the respondents strongly agrees that this system is satisfactory to be used.
