This paper will define, depict, present, and publish the findings of research during the course of the year regarding the traffic jam by the main gate of the University of Balamand. The problem with the main gate has been present according to factual evidence of 3 accidents occurring in the year of 2012. As the problem deemed plausible enough to research, the safety & conflict problem leading from the two pedestrians hit by automobiles in 2011 acted as probable cause to start. More than 50% of students exiting the main gate are subjected to threats of accidents by vehicles passing. The objective of the safety assessment is to evaluate the risk of hazards and threats and in essence find the problematic access road. The data collected was collected over a period of two months with precise observations, both in the morning & afternoon. The safety risk model used was derived from the observations of how the students and vehicles interacted together. The results obtained through the analysis of the access roads were that the Kiss & Ride area of drop of by the main gate is the problematic Access road that is causing the most issues. In essence this access road endures the highest risk rate.
