Driving licence procedures for expatriates simplified
From now on ( Jan'10), expatriates who have a valid driving licence back home can get Omani driving licence irrespective of the nature of their jobs or level of their academic qualifications. The recent announcement by the Directorate-General of Traffic Services to simplify expatriate driving licence procedures is a reason to heave a sigh of relief as neither drum test nor slope test is applicable to those who have a valid driving licence from their country. "This is applicable to those who have light motor vehicle driving licence from their native countries", Ali Khamis al Jahdami, Supervisor, Licence Issuance Section at the Qurum Traffic office, told the Observer.

Don’t eat or drink while driving
I WILL never forget that day when I was at a publishing house of a local newspaper when a colleague came up to me carrying a ticket for traffic violation in his hand. He did not seem too happy to have received the ticket and asked me to verify the reason for the police officer in issuing the offence and asked me to confirm the validity and accuracy of the offence. When I asked why he was stopped by the police officer he replied “I was having a cup of tea while driving my vehicle on my way to the office today.” I then told him that eating and drinking while driving is a traffic violation and that action can be taken by the police if somebody is found doing something that diverts his attention while driving. He said that this is the first time that he has come to know of this kind of traffic violation. It was then that I realized that there might be many like him who are not aware of the laws. It is necessary for the community to know about the laws of the country and respect it in order to preserve the lives of their fellow citizens. Without law chaos spreads and instability creeps in and this is not only about traffic law alone but also laws that affect human lives. There are many people who ignore the fact that eating and drinking while driving result in great danger and would expos them to legal accountability. They leave their homes in the morning and enjoy eating and drinking while driving and the don’t recognize the danger they might bring on to others. And add to that the see this behavior of theirs as a part of urbanization. As human beings we are bound by the laws specific to the country that we are born to from the day of our birth. Law regulates all the issues of our life so the human being must be familiar with the rules that govern his life. — ( Courtesy: By Captain Rashid bin Sulaiman Al Abri , http://www.timesofoman.com )
