Abu Dhabi Police required school bus drivers to adhere to five controls when using the “stop” lever, so as not to obstruct traffic, as the companies operating school buses were required to stop the bus in front of the student’s home, except in the event of obstruction or road work, and not to stop on highways and main roads. As well as public bus stops located on the main roads, because they are considered unsafe areas for students to get off and on.

The Abu Dhabi Police stressed that the “stop” arm for school buses should not be opened in the event the student is inside his home, so as not to cause traffic jams on the roads, noting that drivers can file a grievance against the violation of non-stop when seeing the “stop” arm, and its value is 1000 dirhams, and its cancellation in If it is proven that school bus drivers do not comply with the controls for using the “stop” lever, and open it in undesignated places and parking.


Vehicle drivers were obligated to maintain a five-meter safety and protection distance from the school bus when it stops, so that the driver has a greater view of what may happen around the school bus, especially since some students may perform random behaviors and run in the street, even if the student is disembarked from one side right.
