Steering Oman towards safer driving

Bringing together VIPs, key influencers and safety instructors, SOHAR Safer Driving Week combined defensive driving courses and crash simulators with activities that targeted Port and Freezone road users. This three-day educational programme, which ran from the 16-18 December highlighted the need for a more personal focus on local road safety and taught drivers about day-to-day risks and our long-term aim to save lives across Oman.
“Safe driving is a serious matter, but it doesn’t start on the roads. It starts with a change in mentality, and while we cannot stop accidents from happening, changing attitudes through education programmes like the SOHAR Safer Driving Week is something we can do. As a leading business and employer of over 9,000 people, we have an obligation to instil this within every driver and on every road in Oman,” said Mr. Toet.
