Dubai: More than 7,000 unlicensed transport offences were recorded over six months in Dubai, according to the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA).

The RTA has been trying to curb unlicensed transport activity in Dubai through a campaign called Saher Dubai in collaboration with Dubai Police.

Abdullah Al Mahri, Director of Transport Activities and Monitoring Department, which is carrying out the 8th edition of the campaign, said the total number of violations recorded during the first half of the year amounted to 7,126 offences.

“The RTA does not seek to collect fines against offenders, but rather focuses on curbing negative practices of public transport, intensifying the monitoring of violators in Dubai, and reducing the number of complaints relating to this practice.

Slapping offences is only one of the means adopted in the aftermath of awareness campaigns to uproot this negative practice,” Al Mahri said. More info
