Dubai’s Road and Transport Authority (RTA) is cracking down on companies whose drivers have poor safety records via a series of safety campaigns.
The RTA will be stepping up its programme of on-site inspections, focusing especially on worn tyres, defective lights, and missing or unclear numberplates.
