‘Big Brother’ cameras on all Dubai taxis this year

 

DUBAI – All Dubai’s 10,221 taxis will be fitted with surveillance cameras by the end of 2018 to monitor drivers’ behaviour, the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) announced on Sunday.

More than 6,500 taxis have already been fitted with the device so far.

Adel Shakri, Director of Transportation Systems at RTA’s Public Transport Agency, said the surveillance camera system aims to ensure that taxi drivers are following driving rules and displaying professional conduct with passengers.

“This will motivate them to observe better standards of behaviour and attitudes towards passengers. The footage of these cameras can be retrieved in case of any violations reported during the taxi trips to eliminate any complaints from service beneficiaries,” Shakri said. GAD/Expat Media
