The Roads and Transport Authority has stepped up its road safety campaign for schoolchildren with 771 fines issued against non-compliant schools and transport operators in the first three months of this year. "The number is almost half of the total number of fines issued in the whole of 2011, which reflects increased monitoring," said Eisa Al Dossary, Chief Executive Officer of the RTA's Public Transport Agency, which regulates school transport.
The quality and standard of school transport in Dubai has seen a dramatic change since 2008, when the Dubai Executive Council issued a law to control school transport. Since then the Roads and Transport Authority has issued detailed regulations, guidelines and specifications for buses. It has also provided training to school bus drivers and attendants, and only those who are certified by the authority can drive school buses.
