This study utilized a descriptive research design. The total number of traffic enforcers were gathered from the Office of Dasmariñas Community Affairs (DASCA). Slovin’s formula was used to compute the sample size of 120 respondents among 172 enforcers selected using quota sampling. A self-made questionnaire that obtained the demographic data of the respondents and responses to statements pertaining to level of awareness was used.
