New Abu Dhabi School Bus System Will Keep Pupils Safe
A safety system that makes sure all pupils are accounted for has been installed on hundreds of school buses.
Emirates Transport and Abu Dhabi Education Council said 1,300 vehicles had been fitted with the system, which counts the number of children getting on and off. It requires the driver to check each seat and triggers an alarm if anyone remains onboard.
The new technology aims to prevent a repeat of the case of Nizaha Aalaa, the three-year-old who died of heat exhaustion in October last year after being locked inside a school bus. Details
