MB Petroleum Services installs IVMS machines in buses operated by Moosa Bin NaseerBoys School
As part of its ongoing efforts to highlight the importance of safe driving practices in the community, MB Petroleum Services (MBPS) has installed In-Vehicle Monitoring System (IVMS) instruments in school buses being operated by Moosa Bin Naseer Boys School. In addition to the IVMS instruments, drive safe messages were put up on the exterior of the 12 school buses to further reiterate prudent driving habits.
The company has previously installed IVMS instruments in several other schools across the capital. This instrument ably monitors the driving speed, the intensity of acceleration, braking, shocks due to the condition of the roads and the recording of the intensity of shocks suffered by vehicles. It also checks the engine status, duration of parking as well as the ‘engine on’ thereby saving fuel cost. The IVMS instruments not only monitor speed & engine status but also records and keep track of driving behavior, thereby ensuring that speed limits and safe driving practices are adhered to at all times.
Khamis Al Hinai – General Manager, MBPS Oman, said, “As a corporate, we are committed to supporting communities within which we operate. We have partnered with several schools in the past in the capital region.This time, we specifically targeted aboy’s school asstatistics in a media report revealed that young boys meet with more accidents due to reckless driving. We want to inculcate safe driving habits from a young age so that when they take on the wheels, they will emulate the same on the roads. Our motto is to try and make the roads in Oman safe!”
Abdul Aziz Bin Hamed Al Dhaghari, Principal, Moosa Bin NaseerBoys School added, “We are extremely happy to partner with MB Petroleum Services, who are a shining example of a good corporate. We have partnered with this cause as we feel it is pivotal to spread the notion of safe driving habits – especially among youngsters. In the recent past we have all read several instances of school buses being driven rashly and causing accidents. While it is extremely unfortunate, we as a school felt that we need to do something about this. We thank MBPS for giving us an opportunity to partner with them in making the roads in Oman safe!”
