The world always faces multiple risk factors due to an increase in traffic accidents. This leads to the death of many people. Some of them get seriously injured and get permanent disabilities due to the negligence of persons in following traffic safety procedures. The General Directorate of Traffic in the Sultanate of Oman is responsible for regulating traffic in the country by monitoring the movement of traffic in the streets of inside cities and outside to preserve the safety of traffic in the streets of the Sultanate of Oman. This research paper aims to provide a solution in educating Omani residents about teaching driving laws, especially in Oman. The solution will raise awareness in the society with the rules and laws related to traffic safety. In order to justify and support the requirements of this research, the researchers conducted interviews and surveys among the public. The methods of data collection included questionnaires and interviews.

The analysis showed that majority of the audience who participated in surveys strongly agreed that such kind of education system for the residents was really essential so that they could learn about the importance of traffic rules and regulations right from their childhood. Finally, the researchers have proposed to develop a mobile app, which would be one of its kind and exclusive in Oman by Royal Oman Police (ROP) – Traffic Safety Unit. The methodology used in the development of this project would be the spiral model. Relevant literature was reviewed in order to study the existing system and also the similar systems which are existing around the world.
