All taxis running in Dubai will be fitted with surveillance cameras that will record the behavior of their drivers and monitor them closely. The announcement was made by the Roads and Transport Authority, Dubai.
According to media reports that appeared in the Gulf, “This will help detect violations during taxi rides. It will also bring down the number of complaints and adverse remarks made by the service users.”
In all, 10,684 taxis that comprise the entire Dubai fleet are fitted with cameras that get activated by sensors immediately after a customer enters the cab. The regulatory body for taxis in Dubai said that it will ensure marked improvement in the behavior of taxi drivers.
