"The move is aimed to boost safety in all 455 ET school buses."

Smart sensors have been installed in all Emirates Transport (ET) school buses, according to a top official.

Obaid Al Breiki, head of the ET office in Ras Al Khaimah, said all schools buses in the emirate have been fitted with smart sensors ahead of the new academic year. "The move is aimed to boost safety in all 455 ET school buses."

The company recently added 31 new buses to its school bus fleet, he added.

Al Breiki said the smart sensors starts working when the school bus is stopped or closed. "They detect any item, body, or student left behind and sound a high alarm.

"The smart sensors is an added value to the 22,000 students in RAK government schools. Each bus driver has also been given a special card displaying these words: 'No student onboard' to display on the rear windshield after pulling over and closing the bus."

All bus supervisors have been instructed to double check the buses before closing them to ensure that no student or a strange object is left behind. "A fine shall be slapped against any bus driver who forget to leave the 'No student onboard' car on the rear windshield before closing the bus doors at their specialized parking areas."
